Sir Edmund Hillary: 1919-2008

The country mourns the passing of such an icon - Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. Truly, he lived out the motto of his alma mater, Auckland Grammar School: "per angusta ad augusta" which means "through difficulties to great heights".

A great man whose adventurous spirit and generous heart will continue to inspire New Zealanders for many years to come.
