OUR STORIES

  • Bill Gibbins must surely have shed a joyful tear at Warrnambool last Sunday when he saw High Mode take line honours in the nation’s inaugural running of the Jericho Cup.

    A final year Parade College student of the class of 1963, Bill, with his foresight and generosity, was the motivating force behind the formation of this historic horse race 100 years after Bill The Bastard won the cup over three miles in a race involving Australia’s Light Horsemen at Jericho in Palestine.

    A number of Old Paradians, amongst them Terry Henderson (1966) Chris Jackson (1978), Dale McCann (1979) and Gerry Walsh (1973), together with Honorary Old Paradian Maurie Considine (2014) and his son Brendon, joined Bill at the track in support of the philanthropist, whose motivation in reviving the race run over three miles stemmed from his reading of Roland Perry’s tome Bill The Bastard three years ago.
  • Elnaz Tavancheh, Parade’s only female student in the College’s 147-year history, paid Old Paradians central a welcome visit this week.

    It’s been a seismic 2018 for Elnaz, who completed her final year at the College four years ago and later earned a scholarship at La Trobe University. Last week she learned that she had earned a High Distinction in completing her Honours in Biomedical Science at Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute – and next year she hopes to commence her PhD.

    For the moment though, Elnaz is seeking work to help pay the bills until early New Year – and she is calling on the Old Paradians network for help.

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.
