Between April 1975 and June 1986, 12,813 arrivals were sponsored under the Refugee and Special Humanitarian Program. Family stream migration increased the numbers of the Cambodia-born in Australia to over 20,000 by the mid-1990s.

I know a foreign student in our class when I was in year 11 (could be year 12, not sure now),

I am aware of him because me and 3 of my best buddies sat on the same lab bench in Physics, and when this guy come, he sat on our bench without asking, one of our best friend is force to move to the back of the class. I only see him in Physics, not sure where he is in all the other classes.

I can't remember his name, he doesn't talk to anybody, so imagine how awkward when we do science experiment.

He always carries a bicycle pump with him, so he most likely come by bike with a leaky wheel he can't afford to fix.

We are in year 11, we are 16, 17 years old, but this man must be in his mid 30s, maybe older, which explain why he never fit in, so he is actually older then most of our teachers, I think the teacher told us he is a gifted students where the government sponsor him to study in Australia. From memory he stayed with us for less then a school terms, no one know, no one asked his where about.

I pretty sure he is from Cambodia.
