Mr Munro died quite a few years ago from an asbestos related illness.

A recent story with a pic­ture fea­tur­ing Ross appeared in the West Aus­tralian and on the ABC news site in May this year and stu­dents and staff who knew Ross might be inter­ested. Links are here

What a lovely guy Ross Munro was. Appar­ently he con­tracted asbesto­sis or what­ever they call that ill­ness from liv­ing in Wit­tenoom as a child.
Really was a very encour­ag­ing teacher and had a gen­tle and calm­ing demeanour. An Angel to be sorely missed.

I remem­ber Ross Munro as one of the best teach­ers I ever had. He always cared and actu­ally talked to you. He had an excel­lent sense of humour and was always kind. His classes were so inter­est­ing and moti­vat­ing. He really was a great guy and I am so sad to hear of his pass­ing.
