As the leading early childhood education provider, Smart Reader® Worldwide takes pride in its award-winning quality programmes. The Smart Reader ® English programme was developed by experienced educators and is proven to be successful in enhancing students’ verbal expression, fluency and articulation of the English language. Incorporating Smart Reader Creative Teaching Methodology™, various unique activities and competitions were held to encourage students to practise and incite confidence to use the language.

On 26th November 2022, Smart Reader® Worldwide organised the Smart Reader Kids® Storytelling Competition Grand Final at Pavilion Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.  The event had gathered 12 finalists who managed to pass the preliminary rounds held in Smart Reader Worldwide HQ.  Students were allowed to choose any kind of storybook to present their story.  During the finale, 5-minutes we allocated for each finalist to perform in front of the judges as well as a large audience of educators, students, parents, the media, and publics.

Officiating the event was Mr Keefe Ong, the Executive Director of Smart Reader® Worldwide.  He commented on how the competition can truly assist in encouraging the usage of English Language from a very young age.  “English language had gained significant importance in Malaysia as it is widely and extensively utilised in communication, informative literature and websites, business and finance as well as entertainment.  That is one of the main reasons why it is vital for us to build a good foundation in the language as it allows the children to attain higher levels of English proficiency in future,” he said.  He thanked Pavilion Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur for sponsoring the venue as well as other venues which were AEON Bandar Dato’ Onn, Johor, and Prangin Mall, Penang for allowing the children to showcase their talent.

Each participant also received attractive goodie bags, thanks to sponsors:  TGI Friday’s, Origina and Muruku Hannars.
