“We have worked pretty hard over the past two years to develop entrepreneurial learning in our school,” Ms. Mussger said.

“We started with the idea of ​​creating opportunities for our students to see life beyond the classroom door.

“We want them to forge strong bonds within the community, so that they can stay in the community, be prosperous, and then become the Murraylands workforce and the backbone of our society.

“We have over 550 students involved in entrepreneurial learning and this is now creating entrepreneurial experiences for students.”

“Murray Bridge was one of around 50 schools to offer a business learning pitch.

“There was a united council that wanted two metro schools and two regional schools. Murray Bridge was the most outstanding school in regional South Australia.

“I can’t wait to see what some of the things these students will achieve in the years to come.
