Introducing the Phil Roberts Literacy Fund: A Tribute to Principal Phil Roberts' 33 Years of Dedication

After an illustrious journey spanning over three decades, Principal Phil Roberts bid farewell to Mount Sinai College in July 2023, leaving a legacy of unwavering commitment and transformative leadership. For an impressive 33 years, Phil was an integral part of the school's fabric, evolving from a dedicated teacher to his role as Deputy and, ultimately, his 20-year reign as Principal. Phil's impact reverberated across the school community and even broader educational circles. His contributions were reflected in his leadership within the school and his involvement on multiple boards and committees, including positions with IPSHA, ISTAA, and CIS.

The Phil Roberts Literacy Fund is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated himself to fostering a deep appreciation for cultural and scientific pursuits and literature among our students. Phil is passionate about instilling a love of learning from an early age, and he sees foundational literacy skills as the key to academic success and the building blocks that cultivate all intellectual curiosity.

The fund will provide students access to a rich tapestry of books, literary, scientific and musical resources, and innovative educational programs that will ignite their imaginations and fuel their thirst for knowledge encouraging a lifelong love of reading, enquiry and learning. It will also support digital literacy and innovative STEAM projects that will empower students to discover their voices, become confident communicators, satisfy curious minds and realise their full potential in a rapidly evolving world. True to Phil's vision. 


The Building Fund will support ongoing capital works and ensure our state-of-the-art school continues to have the appropriate facilities and infrastructure that align with its innovative and evolving teaching methodologies.  

In 2021, Mount Sinai College celebrated 40 years since its establishment. Over the past four decades, it has proven to be a jewel in the crown of our community, offering academic excellence and a rich and immersive Jewish experience. The MSC Foundation will give the school the security it needs to plan for the next 40 years and beyond.  

As the winner of the prestigious Learning Environments Australasian awards for renovations above $5 million, our sights are set on continuing our campus expansion.
