The Annual Report is a summary of the happenings, results and plans for the year past. All public schools must produce an Annual Report. Principals are required to certify that information in this report is the result of a rigorous school self-evaluation process and is a balanced and genuine account of the school’s achievements and areas for development.
The Annual Report for 2018 is provided to the community of Saroj Mehta International School, Karanjani as an account of the school’s operations and achievements throughout the year. It provides a detailed account of the progress the school has made to provide high quality educational opportunities for all students, as set out in the school plan. It outlines the findings from self–assessment that reflect the impact of key school strategies for improved learning and the benefit to all students from the expenditure of resources, including equity funding.

The 2018 – 2019 Business Plan was developed with significant input from staff and School Board members. As principal, I regularly report to the School Board on the school’s progress towards the implementation of strategies within the Business Plan, as well as on the achievement of milestones and targets.

Strengthening positive school community relationships is of utmost importance to our school. There is strong community participation through our School Board, the P&C Association and parent volunteers. The Buildings & Grounds, Chaplaincy and Well-Being, Events and Healthy Eating active partners in setting school direction. In addition to these subcommittees, the P&C has established a Building Fund, operates the school uniform shop, manages the operation of the school’s pool and maintains an effective communication network for parents. In 2019, a Sustainability community was established launching several successful projects including composting bays and planting baths.
