It’s already that time again – Murray Bridge High School’s year 12 students will have their night of nights this Friday.

They’ll be back at the town hall this year, after COVID forced the cancellation of the 2020 formal and its replacement with a students-only dinner at Murray Bridge Racing Club in November.

Even that event only narrowly avoided disaster, falling on the eve of South Australia’s brief lockdown.

Here’s to happier times for the class of 2021.
