Kingham Hill rugby has undergone massive development over the last three years. We are hugely thankful to our sponsors, Red Kite Funds, for giving us the resources to obtain high quality training equipment and team wear and assistance with our rugby tour. The hard work that has been put in to develop this sport by the staff and players meant that we had earned the right to tour, and France was selected as a suitable destination due to the quality of their rugby, their hospitality and the location of the Rugby World Cup 2011.
On behalf of his family, I regret to have to let you know, that our father, William Henry Parker (Bill), passed away on Thursday 27th November 2014 in Nambour District Hospital, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. His age was 90 years and one month.
He greatly enjoyed keeping up to date with the latest happenings at Kingham Hill and knew much about its history. He regularly communicated, by email or via Skype, with a number of his former fellow students and staff of Kingham Hill.
He made a number of valuable contributions to the KH website over the years, sharing photos and stories and posting documents, some of which reflected the poignancy of very sad moments he experienced while in the navy during World War 2, when far, far from home.

So with no experience of independent education and cause of much consternation in the common room of the comprehensive I was teaching at, I migrated from South Wales with Ros, Philip, and with Natasha not quite with us, we arrived at the school in the August 1983
