Shri Ishvarbhai Jechandbhai Mehta Vinaymandir (Std. 6 to 8) gleams with the admiration a devoted son had towards his father. Besides being a loving father, Shri Ishvarbhai Jechandbhai Mehta was also an eminent educator. So in 1961, Shri Kanaiyalal Ishvarlal Mehta helped Vidyamandir set up this school in the loving memory of his father. Initially, it was only from Std. 5 to 7, and it was co-joined with our middle school. But in 1978, this school began working as an independent institute of Vidyamandir.
In 2001, the building of this school had to be rebuilt after it was hit by a massive earthquake on January 26. M/s. Gem & Jewelry National Relief Foundation came forward with a copious donation for the renovation work that was immediately required. This new building is known as Gem & Jewellery National Relief Foundation Bhavan.
Today, Shri I. J. Mehta Vinaymandir is a Gujarati medium upper primary school that includes Std. 6-8 on our Taleybaug Campus, Palanpur.
It has 276 students and a staff of 8.
The school hours are 11:10 a.m. to 5:40 p.m. from Monday to Friday and 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
Parent-teacher meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month.
