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.

The Merry Month of May is well underway at @stmichaelsgrammarschool . Melbourne Performing Choir chorister Hannah Ku did an amazing job raising awareness of g-oz through fundraising activities at school in the first week of May.  We asked Hannah what prompted her to raise awareness for Girls from Oz:

"As someone who has been very fortunate to have the kind of opportunities to engage with the performing arts that AGC offers, I know firsthand what a strong impact it can have on a young person’s confidence, self esteem, life skills and so many other aspects of who they are and I therefore believe that music is something every young woman should have access to. 
What g-oz does has always really resonated with me so I wanted to make my own contribution to the organisation."

Thanks so much Hannah!
