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.

    “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.”
  • 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."

Skye Polkinghorne was just a bubba when we started visiting Halls Creek 11 years ago. She is now in year 9 and recently participated in g-oz sessions on our most recent visit to her home town in March this year. We are so proud of Skye, who also participated in the ‘Walk with Me’ project last year. See you again in just a few weeks Skye!
In long awaited news we are so glad to have piloted a new program in the community of Kowanyama in Term 1. Kowanyama State School Deputy Principal Hayley Lawton was a teacher supervisor on our g-oz Travel Program in 2016 when she worked in Lockhart River and has been pursuing g-oz since her move to ‘Kowie’ 4 years ago.

This term Kylie and Ginger visited Kowanyama for the first time and spent a busy week singing and dancing with students from Kindy to Year 10.

All of the children and some of the teenagers engaged with the program beautifully and we are confident that the program will grow and develop over the coming terms and years.
