In 2008/09 six high schools in Malaysia were linked with six schools in Victoria. Victoria was selected because of the interest shown by Ms Bronwyn Pike, the Victorian Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) during a visit to Malaysia. The schools were selected in consultation with the Malaysian Ministry of Education and DEECD.
