Hans 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
Kingham Hill School is coming to terms with the death of Logan Renner, a pupil from Year 8. He died as a result of an injury caused by an air rifle at the family home during Sunday morning, 29 January.
Written by our historian and from the notes given by
Mrs. Shirley Floyd December 2011.
Sheffield followed a similar design to those of the other houses at Kingham Hill. The purpose being a home for 30 boys and provide a full family life. Its not surprising then this concept governed the internal design of the house, and its supervision. Sheffield consisted of three large rooms downstairs. Playroom, dining room, living room and a kitchen; then the smaller rooms, superintendent's office, bathroom, washroom a boot room and the toilets. Upstairs there were three large dormitories for the boys; also bedrooms for staff and a night toilet and laundry room. If was not long before the staff in the homes were referred to as house parents, the term of house superintendent was consigned to our history book.
