    Mrs. Kassim was a lady of great vision, integrity and purpose. May she rest in peace and her family find the strength to deal with this immense loss. Her absence will be felt greatly by all of us who had the privilege of meeting her. One can never forget her affectionate and kind manner, nor how much she cared about people. I am fortunate enough to have known her for the past few years and will always miss her wonderful persona.

    It was a sad day for me to hear the news of Mrs qasim death. May she rest in peace.
    I was amongst her early students and had known her for a long time. She was a great lady holding great qualities and wisdom. She was like a mother to a lot of students and many of us owe her a lot for what we are today.

    I will never forget the slogan on our books “Live to Learn” and “Learn to Live”. I studied in her school from grade 1 when i was just 6 years. I’ve know her for the past 26 years. She was a brilliant, strong and courageous person. Today getting into MNC companies is only because of the foundation i got from her school. . Will miss her always…
