Ryu Hyon Sun, mother of a student, tells her impression of her son’s new school.
By Ryu Hyon Sun, mother of a student at Ri Kwang Su Senior Middle School in Songyo District, Pyongyang
I saw how my son’s school underwent renovation every day on my way to and from work.
Even on my way back home late at night, I could see officials from the district people’s committee observing the blueprint of the school and shovelling mortar and doing other work together with builders.
Thanks to their devotion, the construction project proceeded apace with each passing day. External walls were covered with tiles and a nice school building rose up along with a football ground laid with artificial turf.
And all the classrooms turned into multifunctional ones, and all the fixtures like desk and chair were replaced with new ones. The school has been furnished with splendid labs, practice rooms, an art studio, dance hall and music room.
I’ve heard that the district officials took more pains to complete the school before other projects since lots of children of the employees of the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill attend it.
Though we are their parents, it is the officials who are actually doing the duty of their parents.
Our socialist system is best, which gives all the children schooling free and works constantly to provide them with better educational conditions.
