    Looking for penpals for students :)

    Sooo, I'm throwing our Grade 7 students (13ish years old) into the deep dark waters of the internet and in the spirit of starting slow, I'd like to find some penpals for them to email - thought it would be cool if we got some people from another country.

    Anyone interested in setting something up? It's about 160 in total but they're on a two week cycle so it's 80 per two weeks.

    I think it'd be pretty cool.

    I am a governor at a secondary school with much international experience. If you PM me some more information about your school, I'll see what we can do.

    Ric_ 's school was looking for cultural exchange like this, not sure if they got anywhere with my school, but drop him a line, as they are desperate to get the international contingent covered cos they live in the sticks and don't know about the body of water you get to if you walk far enough past the chip shop!

    Starting this thread up again I'm looking for penpals again so if there's anyone who is keen (or still keen), let's get this whole international thing going!
