At my first boarding school (up to age 13) we were sat down every Sunday morning to write a letter home.
Further, for the younger boys, the English master (who was a brilliant teacher) gave us a Dictation session on Saturday; a letter which was enclosed with our own meagre effort on Sunday. It was mainly concerned with the escapades of "the boy next to me". My parents said they really enjoyed them.
When I moved on at 13, there was no compulsion to write home. Though my parents lived within the local call area, and there was a phone box.
