Pyongyang, October 13 (KCNA) -- The dear respected Kim Jong Un on Friday sent a letter "Children of Revolutionary Martyrs Should Become Dependable Backbone of Songun Revolution That Gives Steady Continuity to Bloodline of Mangyongdae, Bloodline of Mt. Paektu" to the teachers and students of Mangyongdae Revolutionary School and Kang Pan Sok Revolutionary School on the occasion of their 65th anniversary.

The letter was conveyed to the participants in the meeting held to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the schools that day.

In the letter he said the schools are Kim Il Sung-Kim Jong Il revolutionary schools which were founded and developed under the care of the great persons of Mt. Paektu and are bases for training backbone of the Songun revolution.

Referring to the undying leadership feats of the great persons of Mt. Paektu associated with the schools, he said the schools have trained large forces playing a core and pivotal role in the sacred struggle for defending the country and achieving the prosperity of the country over the past 65 years.

Noting that the schools have very important responsibilities and duties to fulfill, he indicated basic duties, tasks and ways.

The basic duty is to firmly prepare all the students to be the pillars and backbone forces of the Songun revolution who will give steady continuity to the bloodline of Mangyongdae, the bloodline of Mt. Paektu, he noted, and continued:

It is important to strengthen ideological education of students.

The schools should tirelessly educate students so that they may continue bringing into bloom the flowers of revolution by following in the footsteps of their parents and thus make sure that they absolutely trust in the party and the leader, protect their high prestige in every way and defend them at the risk of their lives.

The schools should deepen education in faith and the sense of obligation in various forms and by diverse methods to suit the ages of students and their mental qualities so that they may absolutely trust in and follow only the party and the leader who brought them up and become men and women strong in faith and the sense of obligation who do not abandon the red flag of revolution and the glorious flag of the party to the end though they may lay down their lives.

It is imperative to effectively conduct education in Kim Jong Il's patriotism so that students may become true patriots of the Songun era who value even a blade of grass and a single tree and tend them with care from their childhood, boundlessly love the country and its people and devote their all to the prosperity of the socialist country and its people's happiness.

The schools should channel efforts into the education in collectivism and morality and thus prepare all students as genuine revolutionaries and human beings of conscience who think of their organization and collective before anything else, ready to sacrifice themselves for their organization and collective and personify beautiful morality and ethics in the era of Songun.

They should direct efforts to education to prepare students as revolutionary talents possessed of a high level of scientific and technological knowledge.

It is important to further strengthen the education in basic science including mathematics.

The schools should pay special attention to intensifying computer education.

It is necessary to channel efforts into the education in foreign languages so as to help students master at least one foreign language and speak foreign languages fluently.

It is imperative to exert great efforts for education to help students acquire basic military knowledge to suit the mission as the centers for training reserve cadres of the Korean People's Army.

It is necessary to strengthen the education in arts and sports.

It is important to spruce up research rooms for subjects and drill grounds as required by the times, the purposes of education at the schools and characteristic features of students at different ages and make the existing material and technological foundation for education pay off in practice.

In order to bring about a fundamental change in education it is necessary to further raise the responsibility and role of the teachers of the schools.

The teachers of the schools should take good care of the students' living as their real parents would do and make them regard schools as their dear old homes and warm cradles. They should become real parents of students before being educators.

The students of the schools are sons and daughters of the Workers' Party of Korea and my children who share blood with the party.

The students of the schools should always bear deep in mind the profound trust and care shown by Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and make redoubled efforts to become pillars firmly supporting Songun Korea.

They should study hard, valuing time under the slogan "Let Us Study for Korea!" put up by Kim Jong Il in the period when he was among students of Mangyongdae Revolutionary School and prepare themselves to be competent revolutionary talents who will play a big role in the struggle to translate the desire of the Generalissimos into reality.

The graduates from the schools should become core forces and play the role of pioneers in giving steady continuity to the bloodline of Mangyongdae, the bloodline of Mt. Paektu as befitting the sons and daughters of Mangyongdae and Mt. Paektu who grew up under the care of the three commanders of Mt. Paektu.

They should play a pivotal role in upholding the Songun revolutionary leadership of the party at their posts.

Kim Jong Un expressed firm belief that the schools will successfully train the sons and daughters of Mangyongdae as reliable backbone forces who will shoulder upon themselves the work of the party, state and army as required by the idea and intention of the party and that all children of revolutionary martyrs will become vanguard fighters remaining true to the Songun leadership of the party.
