  • ​The quality of clientele at The Jack Horner hotel on Tottenham Court Road improved markedly at the weekend when esteemed members of the Old Paradians in London chapter hosted visiting Parade College Acting Principal Andy Kuppe (1983) over ales and pies at the salubrious establishment.

    Pictured from left to right is Michael Reid (1981), Peter Wilson (1978), Andy, Christopher Eccleston (1978) and Craig Sandford (1985). They are each armed with OPA pint holders (the first order of ales and pies were on their way to the table) courtesy of Andy, who came bearing gifts as the Association’s envoy.

    Andy also availed Old Paradians scarfs in purple, green and blue tartan to his hosts, who are sure to put the woollen apparel items to optimum use with the harsh European winter fast approaching.
  • A welcome visitor to Old Paradians’ Association central recently was Norm Nugent, whose son Alan was a former student at Parade’s Bundoora campus from Years 7-10 (1980 and ’83).

    In seeking to learn a little more about Alan’s career pathway since he last lugged his schoolbooks out of Parade Drive, Norm was able to provide the following details.

    Alan, pictured here with his wife Krista in July, completed his medical degree at Melbourne in 1991 and was then appointed as a resident and registrar at the Children’s Hospital. He relocated to Boston in 1999, ostensibly for two years which have now extended to 20.

    In that time, Alan has served at children’s hospitals in Boston, Houston, Dallas and now Chicago where he is a Professor of Paediatrics in Cardiology attached to the North Western University as Medical Director of Interventional Cardiac Catheterization at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.

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.
