Thank you so much for strongly supporting the work of our official charity partner, Girls from Oz (g-oz). Each year it is exciting to witness the AGC community engage in an array of creative and innovative fundraising methods and 2018 has proven no exception. AGC girls and staff alike have demonstrated an incredible level of commitment, with dress up nights expanding to include both senior levels in all states and one Perth tutor even electing to run a half marathon to raise funds and awareness for the organisation. It is heart-warming to see AGC involvement in g-oz fundraising continue to grow from strength to strength.
2018 marks the fourth year that the AGC has proudly supported the g-oz Giving Circles campaign, and we are delighted to announce that g-oz has again exceeded its fundraising target. Having set the aim of raising $48,000 in three months, they have raised over $59,000 and secured an additional $22,000 in matched funding. With a specific focus on developing girls and young women, g-oz engages 500 school aged children in performing arts education each term across their three program locations. By the end of the month, g-oz will have completed eight successful week-long visits to Halls Creek, Carnarvon and Lockhart River this year.
The partnership between the AGC and g-oz is a tremendously strong one which continues to flourish year on year. We are extremely grateful to the increasing number of families who choose to support the significant work of g-oz.
