Australia Post launches new education hub to connect children across the country

Australia Post has launched a new Education Hub, bringing together its collection of  curriculum-aligned resources. Alongside the launch, educators from preschool through to older years are being encouraged to help their students to discover the joy of letter writing through the popular Pen Pal Club. 


Online resource hub


Australia Post’s educational resources on the online hub cover topics such as literacy and letter writing, First Nations culture, stamps, coins and collectables and STEAM subjects through activity guides, lesson plans and templates.


Australia Post’s Head of Consumer Marketing Corrina Brazel explained that the resources have been a popular way for teachers to help their students to develop important skills and establish connections with others across the country. 


“Australia Post has always been about connecting people, and with our free, fun and engaging lesson plans we create content designed specifically to help classrooms discover, learn and connect,” she explained. 


The launch of the new Education Hub comes hot off the heels of Australia Post asking children to help Australia Post find its first-ever mascot and go in the draw to win an overnight experience at Taronga Zoo for two adults and two children, plus a $2,000 flight gift card to help get them there. 


Pen Pal Club


The Pen Pal Club is open year-round to any educator employed by a nationally recognised early learning centre, kindergarten or primary school in Australia and is free to join. 


“We’ve offered the Pen Pal Club since 2019 and it’s a great way to kick off the school year to help teachers connect their students with others across Australia, especially this year when it’s never been more important.” 


Teachers can register at any time and Australia Post will help to connect them with other classrooms based on classroom size, location and age group.
