The school owns its buildings and is constantly expanding its facilities, which include the Nyindamurra Performing Arts Centre, eight classrooms, a library, dedicated art/science classroom and administration building. There are two playgrounds for Early Learning students, three for Primary students, plus a hard-court and parkland playing areas for student use.

Recently the school’s entrance has been upgraded with a new bituminised carpark, upgrades to the exterior of the administration building, aesthetic palisade screening and a new school sign.

To accommodate growing student numbers at Margaret River Independent School and deliver a state-of-the-art theatre experience, major works of over $215,000 have been completed on the school’s Performing Arts Centre (PAC).

MRIS Chairperson Jessica Worrall said the PAC has been extended and enclosed to make the space more usable during inclement weather, provide more room for large school community gatherings and block out road noise.  “For this part of the project we were very grateful to receive an Australian Government Capital Grant of $80,000 ex GST, or half of the estimated cost. The remainder was funded by the School community.”

“We have also installed new back stage curtains together with a new stage lighting & sound system that can be controlled through an iPad.” 

“All of this will enhance our performing arts, music and sport programs and will provide a state-of-the-art space for our students and the wider community.” 

“These upgrades would not have been completed without the support of MRIS staff, parents, other volunteers and artists fundraising at Margaret River Art Auctions.”

MRIS Drama teacher, Genevieve Bosman praised the building upgrade saying the work had “opened up the ability to use the space in a more creative way.”

“The PAC upgrade supports our ability to offer a fun and functional theatre space allowing our students greater freedom to express their creativity.”

The MRIS PAC can be hired out to the wider community.
