As part of a cultural awareness week to celebrate the diverse cultures represented among its children, Milford Baptist Kindergarten children dressed in national costume and marched through Milford late last month.

Parents also taught children to make Chinese dumplings and Kiwi pavlova, and perform a traditional Indian dance, manager Sheelagh Priest says. The kindergarten’s children come from diverse cultures, including Hungarian, Brazilian, Persian, Indonesian, Korean, Chinese and Indian.
