Pen Pal Club

We have started a pen-pal club with Rainbow Families USA!

Children can learn about another culture, share their own stories about their family and culture in Australia, have an opportunity to make a lifetime friend or two, improve their non-electronic communication skills, even learn how international post works!
With this program, children and young people aged 5 to 16 from the US and Australia will sign up and answer a couple of questions (age, interests, address, parent/guardian  approval). As registrations come in, we will match children and young people based on their age range and shared interests.

Click here for additional info and signup form. 

Parents:  Encourage your younger kids to participate!  They can even draw a picture or two, or get help from a parent or guardian with writing a little story about themselves.   There’s a real delight when they see an envelope arrive with their name on it, and this is a great lesson in patience as well…no immediate gratification here.  All registrations and communications are handled through a parent/guardian.

Check out this great video explaining more about the program

We will communicate (via email, only with parents) when a pairing is made.   The email will be sent to both families (together), with the children’s names, mailing address, and the parents’ name/email.   At that point, Rainbow Families will step out of the process unless one of the participants wants to leave the club and request a new pen pal.  Parents are welcome to communicate with one another via email if needed. 
All people involved will agree to respect, kindness and no bullying/harassment.
