OUR STORIES

  • A welcome return visitor to Parade College's Preston Campus recently was the dynamic St Kilda midfielder/forward Jade Gresham, a final year student of the College in 2015.

    Jade is pictured here with, from left, the Preston Campus' Sport Prefect Che Watson, Director Pathways and Old Paradians' Association committeeman John Nicholls and the campus' other Sport Prefect Liam Smith, following Jade's presentation of his No.4 guernsey famously worn by the club's former champions of the craft Darrel Baldock and Tony Lockett.
  • ​Old Paradians Jarrod Matthews (2013) and younger brother Joel (2018) were amongst an Australian contingent which recently set a national skydiving record in completing a 130-person formation in the skies over southern California.

    Four years of preparation culminated with the successful formation on the sixth attempt – the 130 skydivers plunging from seven airplanes and successfully locking arms long enough to be photographed for verification of the record.

    The successful attempt took place over Perris, 71 miles south-east of Los Angeles. Incredible footage has since emerged of the formation, that involved jumpers from as young as Joel at 19 through to the oldest at 74.

    Collectively they shattered the previous record of four years previous which involved 119 people.

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.
