Unfortunately this legend's retired but still runs Normo's exams. Best exam overseer ever. Before we start, he goes through each and every page with the students, so during trials when IPT, Geo and SDD are together, everyone gets 30 mins of reading time.
Mr McMurtrie was by far one of the best teachers I have had. He made learning languages interesting, helped us to understand the culture and background very well. He was organised and strict, but also had a heart and a good sense of humour.
he left like a few years back probably 3 years ago. He does HSC noe, he is the supervisor. See him every HSC exam. He is hilarious. "May the boy with the mouth that is moving please stop" etc
Mr McMurtrie was one of the best teachers I ever had. He taught me Latin. I didn't love it, but he always made it interesting. "Slaves Often Avoid Vomit"
He taught me French 40 years ago - great teacher - enjoyed every minute.
