Chilgol in Mangyongdae District, Pyongyang is the native place of Kang Pan Sok (1892-1932), President Kim Il Sung’s mother, who devoted her all to achieving the country’s liberation and women’s social emancipation.
In order to hand down her exploits through generations, a revolutionary school named after her was established on October 12, Juche 36 (1947) for the bereaved children of revolutionary martyrs, who sacrificed their lives for the country and the people.
The school stands on a low hill with a main school building and other buildings on both its sides, looking like a mother welcoming her children with her arms outstretched.
It has a well-regulated educational system of primary, secondary and tertiary courses, and is fully equipped with material and technical facilities needed for the students to study and live.
The students learn and live full of optimism, receiving school uniforms, school supplies and daily necessaries provided by the state free of charge.
The school is exerting primary efforts into educating the students in the revolutionary careers and immortal achievements of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and the anti-Japanese war heroine
Kim Jong Suk, peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu, and bringing them up into reliable revolutionaries.
In keeping with the era of knowledge economy, it is also improving its curriculum intended for raising the intellectual levels of the students to train them into able personnel with theoretical and practical abilities both.
In sunny lecture rooms and modernly-furnished laboratories the students are studying hard to acquire practical knowledge for the building of a thriving country; in the gymnasium, the hall of culture, the library and several other places they are developing their abilities according to their wishes and aptitude to their heart’s content.
The school is not only an educational institution but also a dear home full of love and joy.
The teaching staff of the school is taking care of the students like their fathers and mothers, while leading them to carry forward the spirit of patriotism cherished by their parents.
Over the past six decades many graduates of the school have grown into able persons who are playing important roles in national defence and the building of a thriving country.
Now students of Kang Pan Sok Revolutionary School are training themselves to be reliable successors to the revolution, following in the steps of their parents.
