Jong Un was “pleased that the school building was built in a modern and fashionable style” and remarked that “all classrooms were put on a multi-functional and IT basis to suit the features of primary education and equipped with varieties of teaching facilities.”  He noted that “the school has [a] well-furnished room for the education in Kim Jong Il’s (Kim Cho’ng-il) patriotism, room for the members of the Chldren’s Union, nature study room, music and dance room, etc., and all its spaces are devoted to acquiring knowledge and common sense as the corridor is decorated with diverse paintings and other things which attract children’s interest and ensure visual, scientific and vivid effect.”

He dropped in on a language class and learned “in detail with fatherly care” about “how pupils are taught and how teaching aids are used, their cognitive ability and the quality of their textbooks and notebooks.”  He noted that the living quarters were “built in  such [a] way” that it “not only suits children’s minds but enables them to live without any inconvenience” and was “satisfied with everything such as bedrooms and dining room, barber’s and clinic.”

Kim Jong Un said that “the quality of the country’s overall education including higher education depends on the quality or primary and secondary education and a shortcut to building a talented nation lies in thoroughly implementing the Party’s policy of prioritizing primary and secondary education.”  He issued “important instruction that would serve as guidelines for managing and operating the school.”  Jong Un “urgently asked the officials and teaching staff of the school to take good care of its pupils, reflecting his wish, so that they may grow up uprightly, stoutly and cheerfully without the slightest sadness and worry, as orphans have our Party only to trust and depend on.”
