  • ​Bill Gibbins, a final-year student of Parade’s class of 1963, has been appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.

    Pictured here with his wife Iolanda at the Old Paradians' Association's High Tea at Ballara Receptions in 2019, Bill was named a Member in the General Division (AM) “for significant service to horse racing, and to people with disability”.

    The founder of trucking company FCL which he sold some years ago to the LinFox group, Bill has been a committed philanthropist. He won the hearts and minds of all Australians back in 2007 when he spent part of his fortune to outbid a Sydney developer to save the Albert Park headquarters of the surviving Rats of Tobruk – just when the old veterans thought age might finally weary them and the years condemn.

    Bill assured the Rats that the premises where their association had met for more than 50 years was theirs to keep for as long as they wanted. As he told them at the time: “I thought I’d buy it and let you keep it going, because we owe you a debt that can’t possibly be repaid”.
  • ​Joe Montemurro, a final year student of Parade’s Class of 1987, has been named Coach of Juventus Women.

    Juventus’ website is reporting the following:

    It’s official: Joe Montemurro has joined Juventus Women as their new head coach, in what marks the beginning of what will certainly be an interesting and exciting journey together.

    The 51-year-old, who will take charge from 1 July, arrives in Turin with nearly two decades of coaching experience under his belt. His coaching career first kicked-off in his homeland of Australia, where he first coached youth teams before moving on to train clubs like Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City.

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.
