Our Special International Student Services
(our school class services - S services) have always been an important part of IPF. Many teachers join their classes year after year; each year also sees many new schools participating. The world must surely be enriched as friendship and knowledge grows through the pen friend hobby!

Every class has a story to tell – and we would love to hear them! We will be dedicating a section in each edition of People & Places for teachers/group leaders to share the pen friend journeys of their classes with readers. This can include details regarding individual student or class experiences, photos, drawings, class assignments, etc. It could even be a photo of the class and why the pen friend hobby is appealing to them, or why they decided to join IPF.

A prize of US$100* will be awarded to the school of the teacher/group leader whose story is published in each edition.

The aim of the prize is to help schools in their fund-raising for reading and literacy programmes, purchase of library books, etc.

*(We will advise the teacher/group leader of the prize and the school will need to send IPF Head Office, address shown opposite, an invoice on school letterhead for the prize to be paid.)

To be eligible for the prize, the teacher/group leader must have joined a class/group into IPF during the previous 12 months of submitting the item for possible publication.

We look forward to hearing from teachers and group leaders – Write Around the World!

Teachers/Group Leaders: please send your item together with your full name and the full name and address of your school to:
