OUR STORIES

  • ​In 2019, for the first time in its 90-year history, the Old Paradians’ Association Amateur Football Club is to field a women’s team . . . and at the Garvey Oval recently, two prospective female recruits Danielle Curcio (left) and Makayla Paraskevas posed for the camera in traditional club guernseys on what was an information day convened by the club.

    A former CLC student, Makayla’s connection with the Old Paradians is through his brother-in-law Ross Licciardi, who currently represents the men’s senior team.

    “I was interested from the moment the women’s team was announced,” Makayla said. “I was going to play for another team, but Ross said to me ‘The Old Paradians are going to establish a women’s team, just hold back’.
  • ​The Old Paradians’ Association (OPA) has established a Career Assistance Program designed to facilitate vocational opportunities for individuals and businesses aligned with the Parade College community.

    The program will initially involve the Old Paradians’ Association Amateur Football Club (OPAAFC), whose senior team recently earned promotion to Division 1, in assisting both players and support staff on their career pathways. It will draw on the support of the many hundreds of Old Paradians and friends of Parade within the OPA’s extensive business network.

    The benefits of the Career Assistance Program are already on show at Secon Freight Logistics – the Considine family company of which Old Paradian Steve Nailer (1987) is the CEO.

    In June this year, Secon employed Beau Calow (pictured) and James Healy (2018), both of whom represented the Old Paradians as players at Under 19 level, on a full-time basis.

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.
