We believe that more can be done to improve education and employment outcomes for students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women. 

The Girls from Oz (g-oz) program, uses a tried and tested performing arts engagement model developed over 30 years by the Australian School of Performing Arts, to engage and re-engage females living in some of the most at-risk communities in Australia.

    “Girls from Oz is utterly inspiring – it builds talent, confidence and self discipline in the girls who thrive through involvement in the program.”
  • Darren FoynesParent of Halls Creek student
    “I am 100% behind g-oz. It gives them opportunity to develop not just in sport, not just in art, but it helps them develop holistically as young women and gives them another avenue to develop their own life.”
  • Kathleen NoonanJournalist
    “In a world where we tend to park the ambulances at the bottom of the cliff and pour money into pick-up-the-pieces services, donating to Girls from Oz is like putting safety rails at the top of the cliff. It’s intelligent philanthropy.”
  • Kathleen NoonanJournalist
    “Girls from Oz does potent, targeted, nuanced and intelligent work. It knows if you educate a girl, you educate a community.”
  • Mysti Bedford-McGintyg-oz Participant - Halls Creek District High School
    “This week I really enjoyed g-oz. G-oz makes me feel very happy, strong and proud of who I am."

2023 will see g-oz return to Lockhart River for the 25th time.

Superstar Instructor Jess Innes has travelled to Lockhart on 10 of these 25 trips and has firmly established trust and important connections with the girls and the wider community. 

For Jess, the true rewards have come from being able to return again and again to watch the growth of the students within the g-oz program.
