IN MARCH last year, Michelle Brabner was excitedly looking forward to walking in and making a mark in her new role as Principal and CEO of Southport College and King George V Sixth Form College.
She had only been in post for seven working days when the Covid-19 pandemic struck.
Michelle is now delighted to be back on site in the campus facilities and after being restricted to hosting ‘virtual’ tours last year, Southport College is now busy preparing to welcome prospective students and the families for a real-life Open Day on Saturday, June 26.
Michelle said: “After the last few months of lockdown, if you didn’t know that students and staff are the beating heart of a college, then you do now! It is so heartwarming to see people back here.
“I have been really impressed by the things people here have done for each other over the past 18 months. Their kindness has got everyone through.”
