OUR STORIES

  • ​In the 50th anniversary of the formal opening of the Bundoora campus in 1968, the Old Paradians’ Association has acknowledged those surviving Old Paradians who committed to the ambitious project as planners and engineers.

    At the Association’s recent Christmas Luncheon for 2018 at the RACV City Club, President Lewis Derrico presented Certificates of Achievement to Ron Barnett (1950) and Michael Renehan (1948).

    Michael and Ron were part of Rene Stella’s extensive planning team for Parade College Bundoora through the mid-1960s. Both were Consultant Engineers together with Kevin Dynon, who died at the age of 91 on the day that Michael and Ron were presented with thir certificates from Old Paradians’ Association President Lewis Derrico.

    Both Michael and Ron were modest in terms of detailing their contributions to the Bundoora project, but grateful that their efforts had been recognised.
  • Bill Gibbins must surely have shed a joyful tear at Warrnambool last Sunday when he saw High Mode take line honours in the nation’s inaugural running of the Jericho Cup.

    A final year Parade College student of the class of 1963, Bill, with his foresight and generosity, was the motivating force behind the formation of this historic horse race 100 years after Bill The Bastard won the cup over three miles in a race involving Australia’s Light Horsemen at Jericho in Palestine.

    A number of Old Paradians, amongst them Terry Henderson (1966) Chris Jackson (1978), Dale McCann (1979) and Gerry Walsh (1973), together with Honorary Old Paradian Maurie Considine (2014) and his son Brendon, joined Bill at the track in support of the philanthropist, whose motivation in reviving the race run over three miles stemmed from his reading of Roland Perry’s tome Bill The Bastard three years ago.

ABOUT

The Old Paradians' Association seeks to foster links with all past students, whose formative years were shaped by the Christian Brothers of Parade College.

Formally established in 1914, the Association’s inaugural 13-man committee included the President James Kennedy (who completed his Matriculation class at Parade in 1890), Reverend Brother JM Dwyer and the Rush brothers Robert and William, all of whom maintained a continuing interest in the Association for the rest of their lives.
