Was my form teacher at HVMTC in Petone over 40 years ago. I hated school but he made a difference because he actually cared.
Mr. Murchison was not just a teacher or a coach or a leader in general. He was the creator! He created The Elite! Young men that are now warriors in life! He created men that are now leaders in our modern day society. Murchison school/training should be written in stone and shall be passed on generation to generation. Ideally equivalent to Spartans!
The most inspiring teacher in New Zealand. Thank you for all your hard work encouraging, shaping and leading the next generation of Kiwi men . Humble, passionate and one of a kind, a true hero!
One of the most influential teachers i have ever had. This guy new alot about english. Loved him as a coach and a teacher. Pritty sure he had early onset Alzheimer's though. shame as he was the man.
A legend, I was lucky enough to have him as a teacher at Kelson Boys during his time there.
i saw him at least once a week for lunch time detention, and i still think of him as the man..
This guy is brilliant. I wish he was still around. We need male teachers like this in New Zealand!
Always the living legend in Westlake. everyone will miss him
is the only teacher at westlake who is truly respected. now that he's going it is going to be sooooo bad. even dale said it: "the school will be ruined the day when murchi leaves", but monoghan's going against it. in 2008 the school will be in an absolute shambles
Keeps The School Amazingly in good shape.... considering we have a rubish new headmaster... maybe we should get murchie to get his BOT Put Him In The Bin !! DONT LEAVE MURCH!!!
Best teacher at Westlake. Everybody respects him. Good Stuff Murchie
Most respected and admired teacher at Wst Lake "Its a global world gentleman", "No Emo" and the classic " Gentleman, you have big shoes to fill, but some of those shoes are ur own" a true legand...
"Oi, come ere...!" He has got to be the most funnyest teacher at Westlake!!
Most respectable man in Westlake. Although I have never had him as a teacher I'm sure he'll do a hell of a better job at being headmaster than Monoghan. For one, his vocabulary is much vaster than Monoghan's so he won't seem like an idiot.
Arr you ma man!!...(Whistle) you kum hea!!he is 1 ov tha bestist teachrs in westlake n ther is only lyk 5 gud 1's!!
he has probably taught me the most out of any teacher he actually gets u interested LEGEND
"fly down there like a fairy or a bird, i dont care. just get that piece of rubish"
excellent guy. great teacher... even though his responsiblities at school may make some people annoyed!
The most RESPECTED man at Westlake. He is the engine that runs the school. His legend will Live forever.
Best teacher i had in high school. Seriously. He may come off a bit tough at times but really he is just a softie. Best English teacher at Westlake. Got my best mark in Bursary thanks to him.
You are a legend just keep it up sir and you will go far.

Possibly the most appreciated teacher at Westlake. No school could ask for anything more.
"little bits little bits" "at your feet" "turn an go boys" "grab a bag and a glove and wait outside" hes the man, a legend, the best thing that ever happened to westlake... MURCHY FOR PRINCIPLE!
Apart from giving out scaps every two seconds hes alright

He is the true authority of the school. the ones that students actually care about, and hav passd his name into legend. isnt prejudice, talks to students like people, a great man, thanks for the years
Brilliant representation of an educational staff member. Commands and deserves respect. Most motivating teacher in my opinion.
outside of the fact that he putts ppl on scab he is a cool fellow
He's cool, he know's the biz, he kno's the hap's and he knows all around the school. Does get people's identity mixed up sometimes, but that's just crack up. Very funny man!
he realy care about the school and students, Great man!
