If you would like to link with a school in Victoria, Australia - or if you are a Victorian school wanting to experience other cultures and link with a school elsewhere in the Commonwealth - click here to register your interest. School2School is part of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games Education Program. You and your school will be able to decide exactly how and to what extent you want the relationship to develop with your link school and what activities your students want to be involved in.


MADaboutART is a charity that exists to unite children around the world in understanding and fighting HIV and AIDS through art and education. Art is a shared language, a bridge that reaches between cultures and countries to offer hope and provide children with the information they need to safeguard themselves from HIV. 











 Just for Schools


Looking for a partner school to pair with in the Golden Tapestry?

An important element in the Golden Tapestry is that we are actively encouraging the pairing of schools in different Commonwealth countries, either introducing them to each other or involving schools which already have links. The principle is that the two schools will work on exactly the same briefs, so they can compare notes with each other and  their two canvases will be displayed next to each other at various exhibitions. Our aim is that the links established between schools will endure beyond the project, providing a valuable legacy on which schools and their communities can build. If you would like to be paired in this way, please email us or telephone us on +44 (0)1869 233165
