In conjunction with this year’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration, Smart Reader® Worldwide in collaboration with Poney, had organised an exclusive fashion show competition for Smart Reader Kids® students aged 3 to 6 years. The glittering event took place in several shopping centres located around Klang Valley and Johor.

The events saw the students of Smart Reader Kids® participate in the Raya card-making activity where the children were given a Raya card to be decorated creatively. The students then wrote a personalised message in each of their unique cards, which was later presented to their family and friends.

During the events, the participants wore various traditional clothes, including baju Melayu, baju kurung and baju kebaya, some of them from Poney’s 2023 Raya collection, in anticipation of the much-awaited Hari Raya Fashion Show. The students also complemented their costumes with creative accessories such as ramps, flowers, and decorative necklaces, as they took the stage to parade their special outfits.

Mr. Keefe Ong, Executive Director of Smart Reader® Worldwide expressed his appreciation of the events:

We’re extremely thrilled by the encouraging response and enthusiasm shown by our franchisees, educators, and parents who have worked hard to prepare our little participants for the show.

He added,

This programme served as a platform for our students to demonstrate their confidence and imaginativeness, and it definitely impressed the audiences. We’re grateful for the advice and collaboration with Poney, one of the leading brands in children’s fashion, who helped us make the events so successful. We certainly look forward to continue this collaboration and continue to organise similar events in the future.

The winners each took home a trophy and a Poney Little Explorer Box, as well as STE(A)M Kit (champion), Enrichment A-Z Book Set (second place) and tumbler (third place).
