Celebrating the Life of Hans Leistina

 

Recently SmallHans Leistina, a dear friend to many on School Days and a well known member of our community passed away at the end of September 2014.

 

Nick Seward writes, 

I was very sorry to hear of Hans' passing. We remember him for his great love of Kingham Hill and the fascinating stories he told about his life. Kingham Hill School took him in as a young refugee who had escaped from a concentration camp at the beginning of the Second World War. The School became his home and family. Hans retained his links with KHS throughout his life despite living overseas for much of it. He will be greatly missed among the Kingham Hillians community.

Nick Seward, Headmaster

 

Remembrance Sunday

Kingham Hill School has been awarded a tree pack which The Woodland Trust has sent out commemorate the beginning of WW1.

We will receive a pack of 420 tree saplings about 20cm high. The plan is to plant these as a hedgerow along the School's new boundary (the field between Plymouth and the Headmaster's house) Once the hedge grows this boundary can be opened as a lane for walking/running/mountain biking etc.

Each boarding house will be planting trees this Remembrance Sunday as a living memorial to the Old Boys who died in the War. We would like to extend this invitation for Hillians to attend and plant a tree in remembrance. This will be taking place at 2pm on Sunday 9 November based at the Headmaster's house. Please do come along with wellies and a spade!

 

"Lest we forget"

We at Schooldays in this auspicious year would like to use this opportunity to remind 'All OUR' readers our school had 63 alumni who made the ultimate sacrifice in the 1914 – 18 war, the war to end all wars:

KHS Inter House Rugby- October 2014

Plymouth vs Clyde

The match started off fairly evenly but soon Clyde, through Luke Maslen, started to up their game. With his side steps and game management Clyde began to take the lead scoring try after try. Ed Thompson was hard to hold back, scoring several tries. Plymouth clung on with determination, continuing to threaten with their captain, Thomas Barbour, leading from the front. But unfortunately they couldn't convert their possession and threats into points.

Important changes to Kingham Hill Association

Since the beginning of 2012, the school has been referring to its former pupils as 'Kingham Hillians'. This term has been gradually introduced over the last couple of years, but with the KHA recently voting to work with the school, the KHA Committee and school both feel that now is the time for this change in terminology to be adopted by the wider former pupil community.
