OUR STORIES

  • ​A steady procession of close friends, truly reflecting the measure of Kaye Nailer’s great love and empathy for people, are rallying behind the Nailer family following Kaye’s sudden passing at her home at the Bundoora Retirement Village on Tuesday morning.

    Kaye’s death at the age of 77 was conveyed to the Old Paradians’ Association by her younger son Stephen (1987), a member of the Old Paradians’ Association committee. Older brother Paul (1986) was amongst close family members who have since shared their recollections of a lady whose links with the College can be sourced to the late 1970s when she gained work at the old Edmund Rice Juniorate.

    “Mum’s first connection with Parade was really through Edmund Rice College at the back of the Bundoora Campus, when she was interviewed by Br. Russell Peters for the housekeeping role. That was in 1975 and that was her first connection,” Paul said.

    “Steve and I were always going to go to Parade – particularly so after Mum worked for the Brothers at the juniorate. Most of the brothers there were retired – about 12 in all – while the younger brothers lived at what is now the College’s administration block.

    “Her role was part-time, helping with the cleaning and preparing the Brothers’ meals. She was always there because her work tied in well with her school hours . . . and she loved it.”
  • ​Pictured here at the Bundoora Campus are Parade’s budding baristaboys – from left to right, Bailey Cumming (Year 10), David Evans (Year 11), Ethan Kambouris (Year 9), Andrew Phan (Year 11) and Anthony Baltatzis (Year 10).

    The students, who form part of the College’s Bluestone Café, participated in barista training this morning, under the watchful eye of Melissa Cumming (mother of Bailey) of Magenta Safety Training. Together they prepared coffees from within the confines of the training van, parked beneath Ambrose Treacy Pavilion by the newly-resurfaced Waterford Oval.

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.
