Strong and safe was written, recorded and filmed in Wadeye at OLSH School with Realtones’ Steve and Wayne for Red Dust Role Models.
The Red Dust team led by Darren spent a week with students and staff of OLSH who were keen to write a song focusing on relationships and young peoples’ need to feel safe and strong in their community.
Wadeye Catholic Care workers Fraser and David put the Red Dust team in touch with local musician and football champion Mark Parmbuk who helped write and record the song with OLSH students and local musos. Big thanks go out to Mark, Fraser, David, Matt and staff @ OLSH and the Red Dust Wadeye team. Enjoy
