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.

    “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.”
  • Dame Quentin Bryce AD CVOg-oz Patron
    “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
    “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

We’ve been busy preparing for term 4 programs in Halls Creek, Carnarvon and Lockhart River. With a challenging and uncertain year for many Australians we’re so glad to be ending the year with all community programs going ahead as originally planned!
We just had to share this wonderful response from the Associate Principal of Carnarvon Community College! 💚

With so many changes to the g-oz program year due to COVID-19, we're so delighted to have welcomed new talented g-oz instructors to the team.
Wishing Judith Curphey a very happy 91st birthday today!

Judith is one of our founding directors and is the Founder of our partner, the @ausgirlschoir.

Her passion for the performing arts saw her start the @ausgirlschoir at age 55, and her desire to make performing arts accessible to girls all over Australia is evident in the g-oz program. As you can see from the photos below, she is still inspiring and mentoring girls all over Australia. 

We wish Judith all the best on this special day.
A highlight of the g-oz program week in Lockhart River is visiting our friends at the Puuya Foundation, and working with the kids at families at their Kuunchi Kakana Centre. 

There is still time to vote for the Puuya Foundation, for the chance for them to win a $10,000 grant. LINK IN BIO to support their important work!
