Hosting the Games presents exciting opportunities for schools across the Commonwealth to forge links with each other. The School2School program aims to put schools in Victoria in contact with schools in other Commonwealth nations and for ongoing relationships to be established. The aim to learn more about each other and develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of the countries and cultures that make up the Commonwealth of Nations.
