Gunner Kevin Dolahenty Trophy -

The image is of the Gunner Dolahenty Trophy. This award was instituted in 2015 by Adrian Dolahenty (an Old Boy of the school; Class of 1986), his wife Nicole and sons (Patrick, Year 9 and Thomas, Year 11) and extended family. The family are descendants of Gunner Kevin Dolahenty who was also an Old Boy of Parramatta Marist and who fought with the 2/15 Field Regiment in Malaya during WW2. He died fighting the Japanese 11 February 1942. He was a keen cricketer and loved fielding in particular. The trophy is itself a statue of a 2/15 Field Regiment gunner.

On 13 March 2015 Allan Philip was awarded the Gunner Kevin Dolahenty Award for the Best Fielder in the First 11 Cricket team.

In 2014 some of our students visited Gunner Dolahenty's grave at Kranji War Cemetery whilst on an immersion trip to Singapore
