Our Trustees

A professional team with a progressive outlook and a common vision to provide quality education for both schools and promote holistic approach towards learning

Dr. (Mrs.) Roshan V bhakta

Hon. Chairperson

A medical family and Ob/Gyn practitioner for more than three decades our Chairperson recently retired from the practice to be able to devote all her time to the Trust.
Being the daughter of the Founder Mme Sulochana Sheti, she was the reason why the school was started. She was inducted as a Trustee much later in her life as an Honorary Secretary and continued to hold the post until June 2020. She has a keen interest in music, environment, flora fauna and always eager to share various conservation techniques and motivates the schools to follow the same.
She has seen the AET grow and has been a part of all its teething problems. She has been one of the driving forces to bring the Trust and schools to their current state of success.
Her goal is to see the AET, the LAHS and LAIS as pioneers in the field of education, which all educational institutions all over India would be eager to emulate.

Hon. Chairperson

Anil Shenoy – Hon Secretary of the Trust is an alumnus of Little Angels’ High School (1977 Batch), and an Industrial Production Engineer. Most of his professional life was in Engineering Design Consultancy Companies with specialisation in Quality Management Systems, IT and Infrastructure Management in reputed International Companies in India and the Middle East. After a premature retirement from active professional life he decided to return to his Alma Mater to help manage the day to day working of the Trust and its affiliated institutions and activities, to provide his expertise regarding Infrastructure projects and maintenance of facilities for the Trust.
Imparting Quality and Affordable education for the various strata of the society has been the sole goal of AET. This has translated into a State Board School and now an International School with proposed affiliation to the IGCSE Syllabus. The school management, the leadership team and the teachers have taken upon them to upgrade themselves and their teaching methods to meet the requirement of the times. The International School developing with a well-crafted Pedagogy and infrastructure to support it will be the endeavour. To see both the schools excel in the Extra Curricular Activities and Sports will be the icing on the cake.
