OUR STORIES

  • ​Jeremy Johnson, a final year Parade College student of the Class of 1971 and the long-time chief executive officer at Sovereign Hill, has been named a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the recent Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

    Jeremy was honoured for his years of service to the tourism industry and Ballarat community as a whole.

    He was unavailable for comment this week, but in an earlier interview with The Courier’s Greg Gliddon, the seventh generation Australian of convict ancestry was quoted saying: "These things come along unexpectedly and at the same time it's a great privilege".

    "My ancestors would be amazed to think someone in the family has achieved such an honour,” Jeremy said.

  • ​With the World Cup of cricket on in earnest in England and Wales, Old Paradian Adam Dale (1986) - a member of Australia's 1999 World Cup-winning squad and the College's only post-war Test cricketer - has made a timely return to the Bundoora Campus.

    Returning with his plethora of cricket caps, from Parade's 1st XI through to his equally treasured baggy green, Adam paid a welcome visit to Ben Shelton’s Year 11 and 12 sports Academy classes. Before a captive audience, Adam relived his time as a student of Parade and his experiences on cricket's world stage, which brought him in contact with the likes of the Waugh brothers, Ricky Ponting, Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist.

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.
