Year 6 into Year 7 Information


Welcome, Year 6 students, parents and carers,

Thank you students, parents and carers who attended Colo High School Open Night. I was overwhelmed with the amazing turn out and I tried to have a chat with as many of you as possible. Apologies if I missed you.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Colo High School and officially introduce myself to you all as the Year 7 Year Adviser for 2025. My name is Mrs Simone Bruton and I will be your first point of call for any support you may need whilst at high school. You can find me in the PDHPE/LOTE staffroom, which I will make sure to show you how to find when you visit later this year.

I look forward to getting to know you all in Term 4 and helping with the transition from primary school to high school. Please remember we are all in this together and I look forward to the next few years together. My goal is to see you all through to Year 12!

Lets enjoy this new chapter together. 

Thank you,

Mrs Bruton
