Busy month at Margaret River Independent School | Photos

It has been a busy month at the Margaret River Independent School (MRIS) with the school's Mermaid Restaurant officially opened by principal Wendy Roediger.

Kindergarten teacher Helen Ewing said it was wonderful to celebrate the occasion after a lot of preparation.

"The children have spent lots of time and effort bringing their great ideas to fruition," she said. The class made their own menus, decided what meals they wanted to serve, decorated the restaurant and set-up an alfresco dining area to serve their dishes.

"Drop in and have a look at this marvellous creation and stop for a bite to eat!"

The school was honoured to receive a visit from stolen generation member and Undalup representative Sandra Hill, who spoke to year 2-6 students about the stolen generation.

"Sandra told her story through her amazing and poignant art works and commended our students for their intelligent questions and understanding.

"MRIS aims to make this a yearly event and hopefully include some form of art work partnership in the future."

As the rain came down, Crazy Hair Day brightened spirits at the school.

Students and staff wore some weird and wonderful hair-dos including a cup cake, spider and a unicorn to raise money for the school's sponsor child.
