In memory of Murray Kitteringham
For those of you who were in the first two or three meetings of the WGI Glasser Quality School subcommittee, you will remember Murray as a young, dynamic, enthusiastic and skilled principal of a school in Sydney Australia. He presented the second session and had us all enthralled for over an hour telling us about how he had worked in his high school with Dr Glasser’s concepts. He was well known throughout New South Wales and beyond for achieving a ‘turnaround’ for his school.
He had only just become a Basic Instructor and was ready to share his knowledge with others and desperately wanted his school to be a GQS He had big plans.
He had accepted the Zoom invitation for our June meeting. Alas he passed away over the weekend. In our country there is a saying “A mighty tōtara ( tree) has fallen” . Murray was truly a mighty totara. He will be such a loss to his family and friends, his school and the whole Glasser Community.
I have attached the transcript of his presentation in March of this year and the link below is the transcript of the podcast Murray talked about in his presentation.

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a great while, there comes along a person that can popularize the truth in such a way that it makes sense to a wide continuum of people. In taking the fundamental principles of cognitive psychology and expanding on those truths in a creative manner, Dr William Glasser has given to the world an understanding of human behavior and accordingly, suggestions on how to live a life in harmony with humankind’s nature and better judgment. It is a study worth the investment. For some, it will be life-changing; for others, it will be a reinforcing of the better angels of our nature.
