Written communication between pen pals can provide a rationale for letter writing.

This initiative encourages schools to link/ twin with JCSP students in another school. Letters can be prepared in class and forwarded to their pen pals via post or email. Teachers can refer to English Statement No 8 and the new Letter Writing student workbook to assist in their planning of this initiative. It is anticipated that this will be a short-term intervention and perhaps consideration should be given to the number of letters that your students write.

As with all initiatives schools are required to evalaute the activities undertaken in the running of the initiative and are also invited to upload any relevant photographs.
