PUTRAJAYA, Nov 25 2010 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor on Thursday extended an invitation for Laos to send two of its gifted students to participate in the School Holiday Camp For Gifted Children next month.

In her speech at a luncheon with the Laotian President's wife Keosaychay Sayasone at Seri Perdana here today, she said the invitation was extended to Laos as she was impressed with its own establishment of a school for gifted children a few years ago.

Students participating in the Malaysian programme for gifted children will have to undergo a test to determine whether they will be able to follow the programme set by the Johns Hopkins University, and those chosen will be offered an array of stimulating activities in Science, Mathematics and Creative Writing, as well as recreational, sports and cultural activities.

Rosmah, who had accompanied Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on his official visit to Laos in June said she remembered vividly her visit to the Early Childhood Care Centre and shared happy moments with the children of the Laos Education Ministry's kindergarden.

"We were very touched with the warm welcome and hospitality extended to us during our visit and we brought back fond memories of a land rich with cultural heritage and a colourful tapestry of life," she said.

Rosmah also said that exchange of visits at all levels including governmental and people-to-people was important as it would promote better understanding and build stronger ties and friendship between Laos and Malaysia.

At the luncheon, Keosaychay and her delegation were entertained with several performances by members of the Association of Wives of Cabinet Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti).

Keosaychay is accompanying President Choummaly Sayasone on a three-day state visit to Malaysia to reciprocate the state visit by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin in 2008.

The Laotian president and his delegation are scheduled to depart for Thailand tomorrow.
