OUR STORIES

  • On the cusp of Christmas and with the 2019 New Year looming, Old Paradians' Association President Lewis Derrico (1974) has delivered the following message to all connected with the Old Paradians and Parade College communities.

    In his ninth year in office, Lewis has reflected on a landmark 2018 for Parade College and the Association's triumph which was Encore21 at Melbourne's The Athenaeum.

    He has also thanked everyone with an affinity for the Old Paradians and Parade College for their on-going support.
  • Pictured celebrating Christmas Luncheon at Heidelberg’s Old England Hotel recently are old classmates of the 1960s (and former College teachers) – clockwise from left Peter Rigg, Kevin Fitzpatrick, John Joss, Geoff Carter, John Meehan, Rod Smith, Chris Glen, Noel Vincent and Mike O’Meara OAM.

    According to Luncheon organiser Geoff Carter, the Luncheon rounded out a solid year for the group, predominantly final year students of the class of ’64.

    “These gatherings first happened about ten years ago and we’ve been catching up every two or three months ever since,” Geoff said.

    “It’s more than 50 years since we finished at Parade, but we’ve stuck together.”

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.
