Back in 2014, almost 400 members of the Parade College community gathered for a dinner celebrating the Centenary of the Old Paradians’ Association.

Seven years on, and the people of Parade are again urged to turn out in force for the Association’s celebration of the College’s Sesquicentenary, at a Gala Dinner planned for the evening of Friday, April 1, 2022.

To be held in Melbourne’s Park Hyatt Ballroom, the Gala Dinner provides a rare opportunity for all connected with the College to celebrate this “one-in-a hundred-and-fifty-year” event. It is open to anyone who has an affinity with Parade – from students and teachers past and present through to families and friends who so readily identify with this time-honoured institution.

A number of big ticket items are in train for the evening, including the formal naming of the Association’s most recent Hall of Fame inductees, the launch of the much-anticipated second volume of Parade Thy Sons vol.2 (a compendium of Old Paradians’ biographs for the period 1963 to the present) and the announcement of a significant initiative involving the Old Paradians in support of the College into the next 150 years.

The Old Paradians’ Association looks forward to your company, as together we celebrate Parade College’s 150-year history . . . all within walking distance of the ‘Old Bluestone Pile’.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this historic occasion - the Old Paradians’ Association’s Gala Dinner celebrating Parade’s 150 years. Tickets are now available for purchase, via the following link -
