A huge ‘thank you’ to Anna Hardinge, for creating a fantastic mural of ‘The Parable of the Mustard Seed’, our vision for Park Street:
‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds but when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches.’ [Mark 4. 30-32, Matthew13. 31-32, Luke 13. 18-19]
Park Street C of E Primary School is a small school that has a large effect on those who come here. We teach and we learn that small deeds and individual beings can have large and consequential effects on the world in which we live. The mustard seed of Park Street grows to become a sustaining, protecting and invigorating environment for all who ‘lodge’ here, before they travel onwards, taking all they have learned and experienced with them.
Thank you so much, Anna, for designing and painting this beautiful design in our playground, to remind us of this vision.
