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.
