Hi there, I am a student teacher from Auckland, NZ doing an inquiry on different cultures/ countries with my year 2 practicum class ages 6-7 between late March to mid May. I would love to pair up with someone and send/ scan letters as part of it. This idea has to be signed off with my Associate Teacher but I wanted to see if anyone would be interested before I suggested it to her? At this stage I think I would be looking at between 2-4 letters. Note: we have school holidays mid-late April so could do it before the holidays or after them or both as I am flexible.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. :)
I teach English at a junior college in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a group of about 30 students who would like to exchange their views with other students around the world; particularly with English speaking students of up to 16 years of age. We do not have any pen-pal accounts. Could you please guide me how we can proceed from here?
Thank you very much fro your time and help!

Hi everyone, our Kindergarten (children aged 2-5yrs) are looking for another Centre to exchange drawings and information on their country. Our children are from a rural setting and our Kindergarten has a roll of 20 Children. We are really interested in learning about a new culture and country and would be excited to send information about our own culture. Our Kindergarten is rural and we have no internet so we are looking to exchange letter via the postal system.
If your pre-K or daycare centre or Kindergarten is interested please feel free to contact me so we can exchange information. Thanks Tracey

If you have a class that you think would like to learn a bit about New Zealand then we would love to hear from you.
