Sad loss of a kind and respected colleague

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the death of a respected and valued colleague.

Fraser Cowie, Head Teacher at Westpark School, passed away on Monday. On behalf of all at Aberdeen City Council, my condolences go to Fraser’s family, colleagues and all who knew him through his role at the school and all those it serves.

Those who worked closely with Fraser speak of a lovely, kind and genuine man who was dedicated to his school, its pupils and staff.

He will be greatly missed by the young people he was such a positive influence on as well as colleagues and the wider community, having spent decades working in the Northfield area.

Such sad news is always felt throughout the Council and I pay tribute to the contribution Fraser made to education in the city over the course of service spanning 28 years.
