Came to the Gold Coast in March 1971 and left in October 1971 but attended Miami High during that time. There are two people I can remember clearly but they're not registered here! So, Nigel B, if you read this then get in touch - it's been a long, long time! There was also some called Charmaine I think. Remember that I was in Bindana house.

Have been working as a tutor and techer at TAFE (GCIT) since 1995. Initially taught in Information Technology, but now I'm in the Interior Technology and Building Design faculty. Originally situated at Ashmore campus, but since this April this year (2011) have moved into the new Coomera campus. Hey, does anyone from this era recall burying a time capsule at Miami High somewhere (don't remember exact year or place buried) to be dug up in 2000? Have never heard anything about it since.
