I attended Surfers Paradise State school before attenting Miami High I believe my brother Robert Hearn was one of the first students to attend Miami High when it was built. My younger brother George Hearn also attended the school he later became a lab tech for pathology at Southport Hospital. My brother Robert and I had a rock group Kowbell,Sweetleaf and played at the hall on a few occasions Wayne Gillard was the drummer. I still live on the coast and will never leave I loved my time at Miami High and have fond memories of the 60's life at High School.

I have been blessed to have a stellar career in academia. I have Miami High School to thank for that basis of that. When I was there, it was brand new, had some wonderful teachers (Beryl McSloy (Hallam), David Swan, Bernie McKenzie, Greg Fearnley, jump to mind - there were many others. They taught me to be curious, critical and questioning - qualities that have not just stood me in good stead, but allowed me to think. My husband, Allan and I are moving back to Brisbane as I retire. We've done some wonderful things - lived in Ireland, UK, Indonesia, PNG, Perth, Townsville, Bathurst, and spent months at a time in places like Sweden and Iceland, but now it is time to come home to our two kids (aged 44 and 42) and their families.

Hi. Forty one years down the track, I thought it time to add my name to the alumni database! I live in Brisbane. Have one daughter and two sons, 28, 26 and 23 respectively. Have had an interesting life, different occupations, travelled a fair bit in the 90's and still working! Would be pleased to hear from past fellow students. Cheers.

Warm greetings to all. I now live and work in Europe. After Miami High, I lived in Qld for 2 yrs, then moved to Sydney. 20 yrs later went to USA, now been based in Switzerland since 1999. I miss Australia/Qld very much--though when I recently said this to a friend, he said maybe you just miss the old days. Seems right. I've been married 22 yrs and we have two teenagers, girl and boy --I started later than most, it seems.
