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!
