VIENTIANE, June 3 2010 (Bernama) -- Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the Malaysian prime minister, Thursday extended an invitation for bright students in Laos to attend the second "Permata Pintar" summer camp to be held in December in Malaysia.

She said these students would have to undergo a test which would determine whether they could follow the programme, set by the Johns Hopkins University.

"We will make the offer but it is up to them whether they can come up with the suitable candidates," she told Malaysian journalists, here.

Rosmah, who is accompanying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on a visit to Laos, visited the University of Laos and a kindergarten as well as a school for bright students at the varsity campus here under a separate itinerary.

She said the administrators of the university and the school said at a meeting that they still required much educational aid and development.

She said they expressed the hope of being able to learn the latest educational techniques from more progressive countries.

Rosmah, who is Permata Negara patron, said she explained to them the Permata Negara programme where children aged four attend pre-school and follow lessons outlined in a syllabus.

"I also explained to them that we have the Permata Pintar and Permata Insan as well as a programme for youths," she said.

Rosmah had said in Malaysia earlier this year that the Permata Pintar programme expected to select about 1,000 students for the UKM (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia) summer camp at year-end.

"We will invite 10 bright students from other countries for the UKM summer camp. Students aged nine to 15 years are urged to seize this opportunity," she had said.
