Small branch school

One day in January 1964, some pupils of the primary course at the then Songsan Middle School in Yonthan County had the unexpected honour of meeting President Kim Il Sung.

Taking their hands warmly one by one, the President asked them which school they went to and where it was. When a local official indicated the direction of the school, the President, giving a thoughtful look at the high pass in the direction for a good while, said anxiously that it would probably be difficult for the pupils to travel to the far-off school.

Then, he acquainted himself with how they were doing at school. Learning all of them were poor at their studies, the President gazed at the mountain path stretching across the hill, before saying in a worried voice that he understood why they were not good at studies. If we had already built a branch school here, we would have been able to save the children the troubles, he said and proposed building a branch school at the place as soon as possible.

Seeing a senior official wear a puzzled look on his face, the President said: How could we treat the matter of the country’s future by referring to the number of children? Certainly not. You know it is for the sake of the children's bright future that we are now on field inspection in this severely cold winter. Even though there are only a few children in this village, we must build a branch school for them.

Later, a cosy branch school appeared at the sunny foot of a hill for less than ten children.
