OUR STORIES

  • ​The Old Paradians Amateur Football Club, with the support of Parade College, has provided Year 12 students with the opportunity to manage the club’s canteen . . . and it’s been a win-win for all parties.

    The club has been thrilled with the calibre of applicants who responded to its and the selected students are now in paid positions that enable them to apply their hospitality skills and gain valuable experience.

    “This approach of bringing students into the club on matchdays to complete umpiring and waterboy tasks is something we’ve been doing for several years. This year we decided to extend that arrangement to the management of our club canteen knowing there are a large number of students doing studies in hospitality and who are looking for paid opportunities to apply their knowledge and develop their skills through on the job work experience.” OPFC President Mike Jolley said.
  • The Old Paradians’ Association’s 2019 Woman of Distinction Award, of which the late Val Flynn was declared the recent recipient, has been presented to her husband Michael at the Association’s Ladies Day Luncheon at Melbourne’s RACV City Club.

    Michael accepted the award from Val’s great friend Diane Vear, who paid tribute in the presence of more than 85 Luncheon guests, including each of the surviving Award winners Barbara Bibby, Patricia Joss, Shirley O’Rourke and Betty Stella.

    A mother to five sons also schooled at Parade, Val was universally respected as a wonderful contributor to the College community. As President of the Mothers’ Auxiliary through the 1980s, she was much admired by her loyal group of dedicated women who continue to gather on a regular basis in a spirit of friendship.

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.
