PEN PAL LETTERS

Pen Pal Letters

Pen Pal Letter Program - links Canadian and Kenyan students allowing them to build friendships and exchange cultural information.  Canadian students are matched with students from Central Kenyan Schools and thus a friendship begins. Thousands of letters are exchanged each school year. In addition to enhancing mutual cultural understanding, this program builds literacy skills, furthers global citizenship education, and allows fundraising to be more personal.  Most importantly, children from both countries enjoy this program and have fun with it.

Flamborough Centre Elementary School - 212 students are writing to their new Pen Pals who attend Uiguano Primary School in Kenya.

     

  

 

Columbia International College - In late February the students in grades 7/8 at CIC received their Pen Pal letters from their new friends at Madaraka Primary School in Kenya. Each CIC student found they had at least one trait in common with their new Kenyan friend- both loved soccer, both had a dog, both liked the same subjects in school etc. Mrs. Willison's students wasted no time writing their next set of letters to Madaraka's students.
