  • Back in November, with the English season already four rounds in, Old Paradian Joe Montemurro (1987) embraced the opportunity of a lifetime in replacing Pedro Martinez Losa as Manager of Arsenal Women.

    At the time, Arsenal was placed fourth behind Reading, Manchester City Women and Chelsea Ladies.

    Last Wednesday night, Joe commandeered the Gunners to the FA WSL Continental Cup League title, on the end of a 1-0 victory over Manchester City at Buckinghamshire’s Adams Park.

    “All credit to the girls who played very well,” Joe told www.arsenal.com afterwards.

    “Our gameplan went very well for 50 or 60 minutes but then Man City threw everything at us towards the end and it got a little bit hairy. We got there in the end.
  • ​In the frenetic countdown to the hotly-contested Batman by-election this Saturday, Greens Leader and Old Paradian Senator Richard Di Natale (1987), together with the party’s Batman candidate Alex Bhathal, today availed themselves to Year 7- 12 students in what was a solid Q and A session at the Bundoora Campus.
    Parade College Director of Ministry Kylie Kuppe said that the Q and A idea was mooted by members of the College’s Climate Justice Group – “a group of kids concerned with the environment and wanting to do something about it”.

    “It’s happened at a time where we really want to infuse Catholic social teaching into every aspect of the curriculum, with staff across all faculties engaging students in the principles of Catholic social teaching - human dignity, common good and preferential options for the poor,” Kylie said.

    Ms Bhathal, whose husband Peter Walsh was also a College contemporary of the Senator, welcomed the debate, which she said was a triumph for free speech.

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.
