Padua College began in 1956 by friars of the Kedron parish, at the request of the Franciscan Sisters who ran the parish primary school of St Anthony. The name derives from Franciscan friar Saint Anthony of Padua (1195-1231), appointed by St Francis as the first professor of theology for the friars. The first Rector was Father Damian Nolan.
