Year 7 2023 Information

 

Welcome, Year 6 students, parents and carers,

I have met many of you wonderful students already across our transition days, however there are some that I may not have met yet and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Colo High School in 2023.

But who am I? My name is Miss S. Purcell and I will be your Year Advisor in 2023. As your Year Advisor, I will be your first point of call for any support you may need whilst at high school. You can find me in the Social Science staffroom, which I will make sure to show you how to find when you visit later this term.

I look forward to getting to know you all over the next fews years and can’t wait to see all your smiling faces.

 

Miss S. Purcell
