OUR STORIES

  • ​The former Test cricketer Adam Dale and 1984 Olympic Silver Medallist in the long jump Gary Honey will be amongst fellow Old Paradians in the house for the much-anticipated Madden-Bedford Shield Luncheon prior to the match between the Parade and St Bernard’s 1st XVIII teams on the Garvey Oval on Anzac Day eve (Wednesday, April 24).

    Adam and Gary were amongst those recently in attendance at the Bundoora Campus for the formal unveiling of panels of 14 prominent Old Paradians in sport, politics and the arts, now featured in College Hall. Both were honoured with panels in acknowledgment of their outstanding achievements within their respective sporting professions.

    With the Luncheon’s RSVP date looming next Wednesday, April 17, you are urged to join Parade's 1970 Brownlow Medallist Peter Bedford (himself honoured with a panel) at the Luncheon in the Frank Mount Social Room.
  • Des Reardon (1957) has paid the following tribute to fellow Old Paradian Noel McNamara (pictured), who died on March 3 just eight days short of his 76th birthday.


    Noel was born on March 11, 1943. He attended St. Bede's North Balwyn for his primary schooling and Parade East Melbourne for his secondary education during the period 1955-1958. His older brother Raymond completed his schooling at Parade in 1957 and passed away in 2014.

    Noel spent his working life as a plumber with the Commonwealth Defence Department in St. Kilda Road until his retirement in 2001.

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.
