Murdered teacher was a wonderful soul

2016-04-13 06:00

IT is an absolute tragedy that such a wonderful soul has been taken so abruptly.

Mrs S. Moodley was a wonderful person in so many ways. She had a heart greater than gold. She was an honest and loving woman who had the strength to push through her toughest times.

A former teacher at Springhaven Primary School, she was not just my Grade 1 teacher, but a mother to me.

She never treated any of her pupils as though they were just a job, rather she treated each one of us as if we were her own.

Years later, when I would meet her at a supermarket or shopping mall, she would always ask how I was doing and be so proud to hear how I had excelled.

I remember when I told her I had got married, she was as proud as my mother.

It’s honestly a tragic end to such an amazing woman. A women of integrity honesty and love, and above all, an amazing teacher.

May you rest in peace my beloved teacher. You will be missed by not only your family and friends, but all your pupils.

I pray that your family finds the strength to come through this difficult time. May your memory live forever.
