ON August 31, Mount Fletcher Village Primary will celebrate the 100th birthday of a special building that was built in 1917 by the Mount Fletcher School Board. Leslie Sinclair was the contractor.
It was initially a school, but after Mount Fletcher Village Primary was established in 1991, the building became a classroom.
However, instead of destroying the building the principal, Denis Neo Setsubi, said the school was renovated in 2008 and converted into a school library­.

“The building is important to the community,” said Setsubi.

The school is to hold a farewell function for retiring teachers, N. Theko, T. Stoto, V. Mafunda, and P. Lesuthu. Mount Fletcher Primary has 1 141 pupils from Grade R to Grade 7.
