The School by Jaya One Cultivates Kindness and Positivity in line with Merdeka & Malaysia Day

Mommy Jane and 4 Little Angels went to the School by Jaya One to join their month-long campaign, themed ‘Let’s Be Nice’ from 21 August - 10 September 2023 to cultivate positivity and kindness within the community in line with Merdeka and Malaysia Day. ‘Let’s Be Nice’ is a campaign to show support and compassion, especially to help those in need. The campaign is also in parallel to reaffirming The School’s core values as a community-driven space built on the foundation of championing community initiatives.

The campaign was served as a platform to foster community connections through the big important themes of positivity, kindness, moderation and harmony – bringing people together, raising awareness for the causes of The School’s nonprofit community partners as well as creating a positive impact on the lives of people in need and the community as a whole.

My Little Angel bought a box of Lego from 2 cute little kids to support their business

Glad to be part of the campaign organised by the School at Jaya One. The kids had shown their talented skills in promoting their created products and learned the skills of entrepreneurship. Hope for the next campaign, my Little Angels could be part of the Kidspreneur to learn the skills of doing business and to help those who are in needs. Besides contribute the positive message at the "Let's Be Nice" board, my Little Angels also had supported the kids and the NGOs by buying the products from them. Thanks to the School by Jaya One for such a great initiative to promote unity, kids to learn about entrepreneurship and also helped NGOs through their Corporate Social Responsibility programme.


  1. Good initiative to instil entrepreneurship on kids and support those unfortunate.

  2. Me and my kids were there too and love the activities organised.
