Helen Synman Archive Project

The Helen Synman Archive is the communal and cultural custodian of the Mount Scopus Memorial College archival collection. 

Our mission is to collect, preserve, display and share College history with current and past students, their families, staff, College alumni and the wider community. 

Proudly honouring the Mount Scopus motto 'Chazak V'ematz', being Hebrew for 'Be Strong and of Good Courage' we encourage you to join in our mission.  You can help us add to the collection and preserve it with donations of your quality uniforms, memorabilia, old magazines, newspaper cuttings, invitations, photographs, audio visual materials and ephemera. 

The Archive is well underway with digitising the collection and access is available to researchers on request. Enquiries big and small are welcome but specific permissions are required to receive a secure log-in. 

Visitors who would like to physically view the collection are welcome to do so by appointment on Wednesdays. 

Contact Frankie Pinch (OC'76), Archive Manager to schedule a visit, to volunteer, or for any general queries, on archive1@scopus.vic.edu.au
