Does anybody know where Miss Fletcher is now?


She was a VSA volunteer teacher in Sarawak in 1969, and one of her former students wants to get in touch. Ann Chin was taught English by Miss Fletcher at a Methodist School in Sibu 37 years ago.

Mysterious Miss Fletcher (centre): where is she now?

Ann wrote to VSA in June 2016, saying she would love to let Miss Fletcher know that she is now an Auckland-based writer, and that her daughter Gabrielle is currently a VSA volunteer in the Solomon Islands.

She didn’t, but remembered Miss Fletcher as ‘very tall and slim’, and sent us these photos.
