Each and every workshop we conduct is specially customised to meet the specific requirement of students, and to keep them up-to-par with the latest progress and developments taking place in the field of education. Costa D’ Amalfi offers an extensive selection of workshops and continuously works to innovate and develop new programmes in line with the ever evolving educational landscape and growing demands of students.
The following is a brief description of one of our more popular workshops - PERMATApintar™ FOR KAZAKHSTAN GIFTED STUDENTS IN MALAYSIA:
Malaysia is committed to developing learning institutions in which both equity and excellence are persistent goals for each learner. Equity refers to the opportunity of every learner to have supported access to the highest possible quality education, while excellence refers to the need of every learner to capitalize on every available opportunity to maximize his or her learning potential. Since changes in every young adolescent are rapid and uneven, special learning opportunities should be designed to accommodate the different learning curve of the diverse learners.
To accommodate the Malaysian gifted students’ learning needs, the Malaysian government has developed a special program known as the PERMATApintar™ Programme. The programme was founded by YABhg. Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, the Prime Minister’s wife who is passionate about helping children develop and grow into their full potential. She has been an avid proponent of the Malaysian gifted program since its inception.
Gifted children have unique characteristics that are vastly different from average students. Their special needs require a highly challenging learning environment. The PERMATApintar™ Summer Camp Programme is therefore a step forward towards meeting the needs of gifted and talented students. This is achieved by developing a solid framework based on the National Philosophy of Education, which emphasizes a holistic approach to develop not only on intellectual, but also emotional, physical and spiritual aspects harmoniously. The PERMATApintar™ Summer Camp is an intensive programme with elaborately planned challenging activities that tests students’ abilities to the highest limits to realise their full potential. The programme is conducted within the compounds of Pusat PERMATApintar School.
Costa D Amalfi SDN BHD in close collaborations with PERMATApintar National Gifted Centre, has put together a programme for gifted students from Kazakhstan. The objective of this 3-week program is to give a select group of gifted students the opportunity to undergo an intensive, fast-paced learning experience within the PERMATApintar curriculum and environment.
During the program, Kazakhstan students are paired up with Malaysian students to ensure participants from both countries they get the most out of this exclusive joint programme. Exposure to the rich culture and history of both countries would certainly be very beneficial in their on-going social and intellectual development.
