UIJEONGBU, July 30 (Korea Bizwire) — The Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education said it will invest 94 billion won (US$82 million) in the renovation of 235 schools by 2024.
Education authorities on Thursday introduced 33 elementary, middle, and high schools that have already undergone renovations.
Daeduck Elementary School in Anseong, 77 km south of Seoul, introduced attics and tree houses where students can climb up to read books or play with others. The school also installed heaters on the floor, offering a home-like warmth.
Students can engage in club activities in the new workspaces installed between classrooms, which can also be opened up to adjacent rooms.
Yongin’s Daeji Middle School set up an indoor square on the first floor of the school building, where outdoor decks and eco-spaces have been set up to create a café-like atmosphere.
The square also has folding doors, allowing students to use the area for a variety of purposes including education, entertainment, or workshops.
Goyang Elementary School turned the school corridor into a kid’s cafe where students can get together and make new memories.
