Colo High School was established in 1978 in demountable buildings at North Richmond. The current permanent site was occupied in 1980. The blue and white colours were chosen to match colours selected by the Uniform Committee. Sam Weller, the school's first Deputy Principal, suggested using the school building plan as a basis for the logo. David Stone, founding Mathematics teacher, drew up the design which was accepted as the school badge. The shape also represents the Tree Of Knowledge, and its three sections, Students, Staff and the Community.
Today Colo High School is a proud comprehensive high school which has an outstanding record of achievements in academic, cultural and sporting pursuits. Every year Colo High has spirit week where students dress up according to the theme and on the Friday some of the staff will perform for the students and year 12 will have their performances in front of the students as well.
