Z Club are all about empowering women, girls and those who often go without a voice through continued advocacy and support. This is all made possible by our fantastic student body, led by current President Amelie Hudspeth and coordinating teachers Mel Phillips, Rachel Kumar and Marcus Bremner.
Throughout this year our illustrious Zonta Club have been working harder behind the scenes than Santa’s Elves on Christmas Eve to recruit, fundraise and support both local and international causes.
Alongside members of non-profit organisation COTA Tasmania, students raised their voices and sang along the streets of Hobart in recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day in June. The efforts of our students were recognised by the honourable Governor Kate Warner and the team were invited to a morning tea at Government House in late October.
Close to our hearts as young and active citizens of Kingston High School is supporting White Ribbon Australia. With student-made posters and a bedazzling collection of high heels, members of Z Club and the greater student body stumbled, strutted and stomped their way through Hobart with messages of support for survivors of domestic violence.
Some of our other projects have included fundraising bake sales and barbeques, assembling birthing kits for women in developing countries and donating to the Share the Dignity drive. All are welcome and encouraged to join us in the future, where the junior-led Z Club are planning to expand our work further to the local community and sustainability groups.
