Catholic Identity and Respectful Relationships
Over the past three years, Year 10 students and staff at
Parade College have been involved in a project promoting
respectful relationships. The College is committed to
providing students with the knowledge and skills to build
healthy relationships. Our community is committed to
ensuring our young men understand the pertinent issues
surrounding domestic violence and take an active role in
promoting healthy and respectful relationships.
The project was the initiative of the Good Samaritan Inn, a
crisis service for women and children experiencing family
violence. Dr Christine Dew and Sr Michelle Reid from the

key presenter along with the involvement of committed staff
and members of the Old Paradians’ Association. Paul, a
former student of the College, has been instrumental in
raising awareness with students about issues and teaching
them strategies to promote respectful relationships.
Recently, students and staff from the three schools involved
(Parade College, Santa Maria College and St Monica’s
College) reported on what they had learned about
“respectful relationships” and how these learnings will
continue to be embedded into the College’s culture and
curriculum.
Austin Ciardulli (B08): “The program shed light on a topic
not normally spoken about.”
Sammy Scarmozzino (T08): “I learned the importance of
respecting everyone.”

“I truly enjoyed learning more about how to deal with
job interviews successfully. I did get a bit nervous
throughout the interview and stumbled a bit with my
answers but the interviewer helped me out and
calmed me down and I would like to thank her for that.
Real Job Interview
Every year for the last six years the Year 11 VCAL boys
have been a part of a program called ‘Real Industry Job
Interviews’. This program is run by the Inner Northern
Local Learning and Employment Group which organises
this activity every year.
We start the boys off with a series of mock jobs ads and
each student then writes a letter of application as if he was
trying to apply for that job. He also includes a copy of his
latest resume with the letter. These are then given to an
employer who regularly interviews people for jobs and he/
she make comments about how each student could
improve his work.
Then we have a day, this year Thursday 14 October where
the boys dress for their interview and then the person who
I appreciated the feedback because I know this will
help me in the future.”
Albert Maatouk Year 11 B10
“I learned a lot about how I should dress for an
interview and also about selling myself more. I also
learned a lot about resumes and how to improve
mine.”
Georgio Poumpoulidis Year 11 T10
“I enjoyed my time during the interview and
appreciated the feedback I was given. I learned that
during an interview I need to put more detail in my
answers and give examples as well. I also learned
that I should change my resume for different jobs
because different jobs are looking for different things.”
Jeremy Marson Year 11 T10
has read their letter and resume will actually interview
them. This person will then give feedback on how the
student may improve his interview techniques. We have
found this to be a very important part of the boy’s transition
to work. Below are some thoughts the boys had about
their experience:
“It was a great day, I was so nervous but after the first
few minutes I was fine. I learned that an important part of
being interviewed is to do some research and learn about
the company you are applying for.”
Adam Webber Year 11 L10
“I would like to thank Michele who interviewed me. I
thought the experience was going to be boring but it was
really fun and I really enjoyed hearing the feedback that
was given about both my interview and my written work.”
Peter Nikolouids Year 11 B10
“I appreciated what I was told about how to conduct myself
in an interview and I think I learned a lot.”
Joshua Novelli Year B10
RACV Finals
Congratulations to the finalists in this year’s RACV
Transmission Road Safety Ad Competition. Out of
the five groups from Parade College two groups were
successful in becoming finalists. Unfortunately, we
were not able to win the competition. Rebekah Smith,
RACV Education Program Coordinator and contest
judge spoke to me after the boys presentation and
said “Picking this year’s winner was a very tough
decision and the boys from Parade did a fantastic job
with their final presentations.”
Again congratulations to the finalists and special
thanks to the boys who presented on the day, Dale
Marshall Year 11 (H10) and Andrew Tasevski Year 11
(B10) as well as Justin Garganis Year 11 (B10) and
Sam Dell’Albani Year 11 (L10).

Michael Upholds the Traditions
A fortnight ago, at the Old Paradians’ Association’s
Centenary Dinner in Melbourne, Michael Pratt GC (far left)
met the OPA’s only other living Inductee to the Hall of
Fame, Capt. Prof. Kevin Rickard AM for the first time.

Association (Michael amongst them) featured in the

London Calling!
OPs’ First Global Chapter Convenes
The Prospect of Whitby Public House, an old time pub
whose origins can be sourced to the Elizabethan era,
recently served as the backdrop for an historic inaugural
gathering of members of the OPA’s London chapter.
That happened on Level 17 of the RACV City Club in
Bourke Street – half a world away from St. James’ Palace
A healthy quota of ex-pat Aussies in the Old Dart, all
in London where on Monday last Michael gathered with
bound by precious links with the old school, convened at
fellow recipients of the George Cross (the highest civilian

gallantry award), together with recipients of the Victoria
Wilson, a final year student of 1978, to talk shop at The
Cross, for an afternoon tea reception in the presence of
Prospect.
The Prince of Wales.
Michael’s awarding of the GC was approved by the Queen
in July 1978 for the courage he displayed two years
previous. On the morning of June 4, 1976 the then Senior
Constable Pratt intervened in a robbery of an ANZ Bank
branch in Clifton Hill, and was shot in the back when he
tried to stop the robbery.
On hand were the following Old Paradians, pictured

experience.
At the school entrance to the gallery we met with our tour
guide, Dave. He was very helpful and filled all of us with
great knowledge and understanding. We were to learn more
about how Jesus and other biblical figures are conveyed in
artwork. Dave guided us to various sculptures and paintings
that conveyed important biblical messages, explaining the
artists’ visual interpretation.
It was amazing being surrounded by pieces of artwork
worth millions of dollars. It was very interesting to also hear
that individually, some artworks were worth nine figures and
their frames were worth as much as a house. All of
paintings were greatly detailed and delicately made. A
significant painting that caught my attention conveyed an
important segment of the bible where Moses liberated the
Israelites. The painting also incorporated the political views
and tensions of the time.
It was a mesmerising experience seeing the beautiful
constructed artworks as well as deepening our knowledge
with our tradition’s past.
