The Multicultural education program, entitled A Child’s Journey to Norfolk: Our Living Heritage, is a project established and implemented by the Norfolk Board of Education and the former Township of Delhi Town Council, along with the assistance of Martin Kowanetz of the Delhi District Secondary School and Dr. Laszlo Pandy of the Norfolk Multicultural Association.
The goal of the program is to introduce students to the rich, diverse multicultural heritage of the Delhi area and to provide children with an opportunity to experience those cultures first hand with a visit to the Museum, along with in-class projects and educational material. In the words of former program co-ordinator Shirley Barker, “Norfolk County has a unique ethno-cultural mix, and as time passes the descendents of this land become more Canadianized and begin to lose their unique cultural history. With A Child’s Journey to Norfolk: Our Living Heritage, we can help children discover and embrace that historical and cultural legacy”.
The program includes activities such as: Belgian Bobbin Lace, Hungarian Csiga noodles, French Crepes, Hungarian embroidery, Ukrainian Egg Decorating (Pysanky). In the past, we have also offered activities such as: Lithuanian Straw Ornaments, Hungarian Kifli cookies, French Dance and Pigeon racing.
