PARENTS and students recently flocked to Murgon Town Hall to celebrate the achievements of the local high school.

This year marked the school's 54th annual speech night as well as former Murgon Shire mayor Bill Roberts' 54th attendance to speech night.

Mr Roberts is an enthusiastic patron of the school.

Principal Greg Smith said the evening went off without a hitch.

He spoke about the students' academic achievements in the past year, including interesting facts on the successes of the class of 2011.

"Students who achieved an Overall Position of one to 15 put us in the top 25% of the state," he said.

"Our guest speakers gave an insight into how to succeed using alternate pathways to education.

"They both emphasised the need for a good education."

The guest speakers for the night were Stanwell's mining operations general manager Bob Rutten and South Burnett Regional Council Mayor Wayne Kratzmann.

Parents and students enjoyed supper after proceedings and were entertained by the Murgon State High School Concert Band.

Academic Excellence Awards were taken out by year eight student Rebekah Kapernick, year nine student Rebecca Rynne and year 11 student Tina-Maree Euler.

Caitlin Kapernick and Sarah Jensen were named junior and senior dux respectively.

Zac Williams was named as sportsman of the year and Rebecca Rynne was named sportswoman of the year.
