Pyongyang, November 16 (KCNA) — All the Korean children are enrolled in the universal 11-year compulsory education system, and part of their benefit comes from the numerous afterschool training centres that help them become future masters of the country prepared in an all-round way.
The government, which calls them “king” of the country and provides them with every possible facility, is habitually concerned with increasing the number of schoolchildren’s palaces and halls and children’s union camps– the bases for their afterschool activities.
In recent years of hardship, there appeared some 100 new such bases, including the Jasong Schoolchildren’s Palace in Jagang Province, that completed their network ramified throughout the country from the northernmost tip of Onsong down to the southern areas of Panmun and Kaephung.
These facilities are to be found at scenic spots– lake Samji, Mt. Myohyang, lake Yonphung and the like– such as the Songdowon International Children’s Camp on the east coast. The government supplies them with a wide array of teaching aids, musical instruments, sound systems, lorries and buses.
At these bases, the children enjoy an intellectually, culturally and physically fruitful life.
