The mural represents community and belonging at Regents Park Christian School and has been composed in four different layers to reinforce different facets of these concepts.
The city background is Sydney. It is the wider community and the city we have been called to love and serve.
The brightly coloured silhouettes of the children are our future as well as a literal representation of the student body. They are brightly coloured as they are the reflection of the wonderful creation that each of us is. The colours also reflect that we are first and foremost spiritual beings and our mandate is to shine with the light of Christ in the world.
The garden in the foreground refers to the parable of the seeds in Matthew 13:23
Regents Park Christian School is a community that endeavours to be good soil for everyone to grow into their God given destiny.
Finally, the last layer is a child blowing on a dandelion. As the wind picks up the seeds and transports them where it wills this part of the image represents the many prayers of God’s people that have been prayed over the school for generations and is a reminder that the power of prayer is long lasting and goes above and beyond what we might hope or ask for.
