I had penpals when I was young, it wasn't done through school though, I think there was some international penfriend organisation that you could write to with your details and they would put you in touch with people. I had three - one in New Zealand, one in Sweden and one in Italy. The NZ and Swedish one I kept in touch with for a few years, the Italian not so long. I still remember their names and even the address of the Swedish girl! It just sort of fizzled out, nothing to do with the internet, this was back in the 70's.
