The Peppin Heritage Centre had a visit from former George St school student Peter Klasups (pictured) on Wednesday.
Peter, who now lives in Wagga with his wife Beverley, was a student of the school 64 years ago.
It was his first visit back to the school since leaving Deniliquin.
‘‘I went to the George St School for 12 months when I was eight years-old,’’ he said.
‘‘I moved here with my mother in 1950 - she used to work at the Royal Hotel (now the Coach House Hotel).
‘‘We came over from Bavaria and at first I couldn’t speak a word of English.
‘‘My name is actually Dieter but everyone used to call me Peter when I moved here and it stuck.’’
Mr Klasups and his mother moved to Sydney and he joined the Royal Australian Airforce in 1959.
‘‘I’ve been married for 51 years and we’ve lived in Wagga for 28 years.
‘‘I’ve always wanted to come back to Deni,’’ he said.
The Klasups also visited the Deniliquin & District Historical Society and Coach House Hotel.
