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.

Charles MeehanIt is with great sadness that I have to tell you of the peaceful passing of my father Arthur Ernest Charles Meehan on the 31st October 2011 at the age of 89.

Arthur was born on Kingham Hill on the 12th April 1922 in the bailiff's cottage. Arthur's father was Frederick Arthur Meehan who worked on the estate and was himself and Old Boy. Kingham Hill archives show that Frederick entered the School on the 30th August 1902 at the age of 9 along with his brother Ernest who was 11. Arthur's sister Esmee was also born on the estate and worked for much of her life in the school refectory.
