OUR STORIES

  • ​Tales of Parade’s two former campuses – ‘The Old Bluestone Pile’ in East Melbourne and the Preparatory College at Flowerdale – were shared during well-earned drink breaks in the Old Paradians’ Association’s Annual Preston-Bundoora Bike Ride.

    The 40-kilometre bike ride, which coincided with Parade Bundoora’s and Preston's much-anticipated Open Days, this year attracted 26 riders who represented a healthy cross-section of both the Parade and Old Paradians communities.

    In warm conditions, all 26 riders – including Old Paradian Matt Donoghue (1989) and his son Mason (Year 9) pictured here before setting off from Preston – completed the ride without hitch.

  • ​Adrian Vella, a final year student of the class of 2018, has been named this year’s Old Paradians’ Association’s Senior VCAL award winner.

    A certificate of acknowledgment and shield were presented to Adrian by Director Pathways Education and OPA Committeeman John Nicholls in the presence of Acting Principal Andy Kuppe, together with teachers, staff and students at the recent Term 1 Assembly in the Bundoora Campus’ College Hall.

    “Adrian is another wonderful example of a Parade student getting the most out of the opportunities the College has to offer. He was able to consistently impress his teachers with his determination and effort in everything he undertook,” Assistant Principal, Teaching and Learning Geoff Caulfield said.

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.
