Banksy leaves his mark on British primary school

Reception class school children show off their drawings of a mural attributed to Banksy in Bristol

Street artist Banksy has left his mark again — this time on the wall of a school in the British city of Bristol.

Britain’s BBC said Banksy had created the mural, showing a child with a stick chasing a burning tyre, after Bridge Farm Primary named a school ‘house’ – groups pupils are divided into – after him. It quoted the school’s head teacher as saying the mural was “inspirational and aspirational” for pupils.

Banksy, whose identity has never been revealed, also left a note for pupils who discovered the work on Monday morning, saying “it’s always easier to get forgiveness than permission”.
