A PRE-SCHOOL celebrated Diwali with a decorative design as the children learned about Hindu culture.
Youngsters at Little Acorns Pre-School created a Rangoli pattern, a form of Indian folk art, with coloured rice as they marked the Hindu festival of light on Tuesday, November 13. The group was taught the story of Diwali and painted clay pots.
Two parents went in to the pre-school, which meets in the grounds of The Colleton Primary School in Colleton Drive, to talk about their culture and show artefacts and pictures.
