VM returns to UK in retirement

VM “Vassa” Moodley

Meeting a former teacher of the erstwhile Fountain Head Primary School in Umkomaas was a “down memory lane” experience.

Retired principal of Tongaat Secondary School, Mr VM (“Vassa”) Moodley, is spending his quiet retirement in Umkomaas.

In the late 1980s, the Moodleys relocated from Umkomaas to Tongaat, and Mr Moodley taught at Buffelsdale Secondary School, and was then promoted to principal of Tongaat Secondary School until his retirement in 2003.

In 2007 he returned to Umkomaas and started enjoying his retirement in his newly acquired flat in the village.

He spoke fondly of his late wife Sheila, a dedicated and popular teacher who passed away in Tongaat in 1990.

His daughter Soraya, who runs a specialist bakery and take-away in Umkomaas, resides with him.

Mr Moodley is indeed happy to have reconnected to his Umkomaas roots and to be amongst family and former colleagues and friends in the community.
