The School of Joy is a location in The Wind Waker.[1]


The school is run by Mrs. Marie, Windfall Island's teacher. When Link first talks to Mrs. Marie, she explains of the problem she has with a group of students known as the Killer Bees. They never listen to a word she says and they are always skipping school, causing trouble around the island.[2] Link can help Mrs. Marie by playing Hide-and-Seek with them. After finding them all, they will promise to stop misbehaving and start attending school.

Since Mrs. Marie loves jewelry, Link can give her 20 Joy Pendants to receive the Cabana Deed, which gives him ownership of a Private Oasis located to the south.[3] Furthermore, by giving her another set of 20 Joy Pendants, for a total of 40, she will reward Link with the Hero's Charm, [4] or Treasure Chart #45 in The Wind Waker HD.

Joanna and Potova can also be found inside the school from time to time.
