Based on the book of the same name, the program takes inspiration from the pen pal experiences of four children living across Australia. Its story hopes to spark students' interest in valuable letter-writing experiences—your copy of the book is on its way! 

The new Pen Pal Club program connects teachers and classrooms across Australia to find their very own pen pal. When you register your class online, Australia Post will carefully select another teacher for you to begin the exchange of letters. 

The Pen Pal Club is supported by a suite of educational resources, helping to introduce the benefits of letter-writing, including:

  • The Pen Pal Club online platform to connect your class to their pen pals 
  • Free lesson plans and activities for each year from Foundation to Year 6 
  • Interactive whiteboard resources to support classroom learning 
  • The book, The Pen Pal Club, which follows the letter writing and pen pal experiences of four children from across Australia 

Get ready for the Pen Pal Club—a new way to engage your students with letter writing!
