It is with deep regret, sadness with sympathy and condolences to their families that we learn of the passing of a few old miltonians in the current year

The common room has been closed down and turned into a O level library. No more war cry and prefects will start at form 3... What do
you guys say about this? I think we should not allow our school to go down like this.

Hi, Below is a note from Mr Harry Fincham's wife (Lynda Fincham). He was headmaster of:-
Gifford 1974-1983?
Milton 1984-1987

Kindest regards
Hylton Garriock

Dear friends
Our dear Harry died peacefully this afternoon at 4.45 pm (local time). Berry, Rod, Biddy and I were with him when his breathing slowed, then stopped.
He had gentle loving care during the day from the palliative nurse, his GP and the caregiver. Our parish priest, Father Francis Onwunali, has just left, after some beautiful prayers and sprinkling of holy water. His grandchildren have called in after work. The funeral mass will be on Tuesday 30 September at 11.00 am at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, 1 Kenmore Road, Kenmore, Brisbane 4069.

He gave so much love. We will miss him.

Lynda

Miss Florence Muriel King (Eveline)
Hi
I am doing some research in to my family history and have come across some details of my great aunts - one of them being Florence Muriel King who I believe taught at Eveline before becoming a principal of Girls High School, Wynberg South Africa in 1914 from where she retired in 1932. Previous to that she was Vice-Principal at Rondesbosch Girls High School Cape Town up to about 1912 and then went on to teach at a girls school in Bulawayo (Possibly Eveline?) until 1914. She was born in Richmond, Yorkshire in 1877 and was a sister of my grandfather. She went to Cheltenham Ladies College and then obtained a B.A degree at London University. I knew her as Auntie Muriel.

I attach a lovely picture of my five great aunts on the stepping stones below Richmond, Yorks on the river Swale when they were young girls. All of them remained unmarried and all were fiercely independent - at least two became headmistresses and the others teachers. Happy for you to use it on your school website if it is relevant?

Do you have any photos of information you might be able to share with me about her and your school or perhaps there were other girls schools in Bulawayo between ?

Hope so?
Best wishes

How are things? Just found the site again, after many years.. I lived in Cape Town for many years, but in January 2012 was holidaying in Australia and discovered a job advertised to which I applied, and now have lived in Queensland for 2 years.

Hello,
I see there are many email addresses of past pupils of your school on your website. My partner Cornelis Smith was at your school back in the late 1950s he is trying to locate his brother Stephen Harold Smith who also was at the school and thought if he adds his contact details maybe he might contact him.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would add my name and email address to the list of Old Miltonians. I was at Milton from 1950 to 1954.
In addition if you could give me the email addresses and location of Gordon Haresign, Chris McCosh, Tony Hawkins, Brian Courteney, I. Abramov, Dennis Stevens, Gavin Godhawk all of whom were at school with me around the same time. Are there any reunions planned in Bulawayo ?
