Former teacher to visit North-east

A teacher who taught at a number of North-east secondary schools in the 1960s is planning to re-visit his old area of work later this month.

Wolfgang Paetzold, or Mr Paetzold to ex-pupils, was an assistant German teacher at Ellon, Fraserburgh and Peterhead academies during the school year 1963 to 1964.

He will be in Scotland later this month and after a 50 year absence, will be in the Buchan area for a short time during his holiday visit.

If any of his former friends, pupils or teachers he worked with at all three academies would like to meet up with him, please contact Freda Wallace on 01346 514564.

Freda will also be able to provide more information on the dates when Mr Paetzold will be in the area and will arrange a suitable time and place for those who would like to arrange a meeting.

Wolfgang is looking forward to sharing old memories and stories after his 50 year absence.
