Rashida Mohamedali

sHE was not only a great teacher -
but also a warm and loving person

Coastweek - - "Teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own".

Mrs. Rashida Mohamedali was one such teacher.

I would like to say the following in the loving memory of my dearest 'o' level (2002W) class teacher and Geography teacher:

Mrs. Mohamedali was not only a great teacher but she was a warm and loving person.

Always ready and willing to assist.

Ever so active; ever so young at heart; ever so encouraging; ever so experienced and ever so wonderful and kind.

She made learning a fun-filled and enjoyable experience for us all.

I remember her once telling me that-school going years are the best years of one's life and that I should always make most of the opportunities that come my way ... looking back I can now see the truth in her words !

She always approached her students with a balanced formula, as though they were her own children, i.e. with a balanced formula.

She gave us freedom but at the same time gave us direction, she disciplined us and yet gave us her unconditional love.

We have indeed lost a brilliant teacher, a woman of courage and compassion.

She will be dearly missed by us all - always.
