Wanganaranku Areyonga 2014

Young Way

Added by Red Dust Role Models

Description Wanganaranku loosely translates in Pitjantjatjara as respect. The Areyonga school was keen for Red Dust to run some programs which focused on respectful relationships during our March 2014 community visit. After some workshop based sessions with students looking at how our behavours affect other people and the concept of getting back what you give out, or cause and effect, we set about writing lyrics for a song. Local muso's Kelvin, Jacob and Mervin lent their talents to recording the music and the senior students set about doing the rest. The video followed with the whole school getting involved over the course of our stay. Wednesday saw a massive pool party to bid the pool farewell for winter so we got invloved and screened the video for the first time to the whole community over a few burnt snags. We were also blessed with some singing from the local choir and finished the night off with a brief but lively disco. All up a fantastic community program with much thanks to all Areyonga school staff and students.
