In 2018, Parade College celebrates 150 years since the arrival of the Founding Brothers and 50 years since the foundation of the Bundoora Campus. To celebrate, the College commissioned well-known artist Jenny Steiner to create a series of sculptures in front of the recently completed Nash Learning Centre. Each sculpture was of the five founding Christian Brothers who founded Parade College in 1871. The pieces were collectively called ‘The Winds of Providence’. They were formally unveiled in an outdoor ceremony on 25 October.
