Year 12 Presentation Night


On Tuesday 17th November Murray Bridge High School held their Annual Presentation Night. It was a very different night to previous years due to COVID-19 restrictions, but talking to students and parents after the presentation they were all very pleased with how the evening played out. Parents could live stream the event from home or some preferred to view it live from a room set up at the school, while the students were in the Drama Workshop.

The school band did an excellent job with a trip down memory lane with a rendition of popular ABBA songs which the audience thoroughly enjoyed. Brooke Lehmann also took to the stage with a beautifully played solo piano recital.

The evening was emceed ably by Year 12 Student Pathways Leader Brock Herdman.

Special awards were presented to students thorughout the evening (see below).

Thank you to everyone who made the evening such a success during these difficult times. We wish all our Year 12 students much success in their future endeavours.
