People of the Past - Sir Edmund Hillary

 

For the next two weeks you are going to be learning about a new famous person - his name is Sir Edmund Hillary.

 

Sir Edmund Percival Hillary was born on the 20 July 1919, he was a New Zealand mountaineer and explorer. On 29 May 1953, Hillary and Sherpa mountaineer Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers confirmed to have reached the summit of Mount Everest - the tallest mountain in the world.

Hillary became interested in mountaineering while in secondary school. He made his first major climb in 1939, reaching the summit of Mount Ollivier in New Zealand. He served in the Royal New Zealand Air Force as a navigator during World War II and was wounded in an accident. He was part of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition in 1958 when they successfully reached the South Pole overland. He subsequently reached the North Pole, making him the first person to reach both poles and summit Everest.

Following his ascent of Everest, Hillary devoted himself to assisting the Sherpa people of Nepal through the Himalayan Trust, which he established. His efforts are credited with the construction of many schools and hospitals in Nepal. Hillary had numerous honours given to him, including the Order of the Garter in 1995 - can you find out what this special honour is and who gave it to him?. He died in 2008 and was given a very special State Funeral in New Zealand.
