OUR STORIES

  • ​In its last formality for 2017, the Old Paradians’ Association has declared Michael Sullivan the posthumous recipient of this year’s Honorary Old Paradian award.

    Sullivan, Parade College’s first lay teacher and a member of the inaugural OPA committee of 1914, tragically died just two years after its first meeting was convened.

    News of Sullivan’s award was conveyed to Luncheon attendees by Ray Hangan, a final year student of the College in 1950. He is pictured here doing the noble deed at the Association’s final luncheon for the year at the RACV City Club.
  • ​Old Paradians have joined current students of the College in bringing cheer to the northern suburbs’ aged and infirm, through the 2017 Community Action Christmas Party at the Bundoora campus.

    More than 160 senior residents across 21 aged care facilities were guests of the College at the annual party in the Greening Auditorium on Thursday. The elderly men and women were handed gifts, served lunch and generally entertained by a number of Year 7-12 students who had paid their facilities a visit through 2017.

    Santa Claus, aka Spence Williams a final year student of 1960, was also present at the party as has been the case for many years . . . and as Spence reminded, the whiskers are real.

    “I don’t know how long I’ve been turning out as Santa, but probably ever since I’ve had a beard, which was after I finished at Parade back in the early 1960s,” Spence said.

    “In the old days I’d buy a tin of white spray to dye my beard, but I don’t have to now.”

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.
