Margaret River Independent School (MRIS) kicked off the 2021 school year with an impressive student population of 160 children, meeting its Governing Body's goal for enrolment numbers for the year.

The growth at the campus, based in Forest Grove just south of Margaret River, is reflected in new works at the entry to the school including a new bituminised carpark, upgrades to the exterior of the administration building, aesthetic screening and a new school sign.

The vision for the new-look entry was driven by former parent and MRIS Governing Body member Bill James, who is also a renowned local landscape designer.

Work will continue on footpaths and signage, with more planting planned in the cooler weather.

MRIS now also has four buses transporting students to and from the school, including a new bus service from Augusta.
