Gold Coast Schools Connect
In 2018, Gold Coast youth will play a very special role in welcoming 6500 athletes and team officials from 70 Commonwealth nations and territories and many thousands of visitors from all over the world.
GC2018 Gold Coast Schools Connect aims to engage and connect with schools on the Gold Coast ensuring the Gold Coast school community is informed, excited, enthusiastic and involved in GC2018. The program includes the opportunity to connect local schools with a Commonwealth Games Association and a school in a Commonwealth nation or territory. It also includes opportunities for the schools to participate in key GC2018 programs and milestone celebrations.
