Brother Patrick Lynch, the Executive Director of the New Zealand Catholic Education Office and a member of the De La Salle Brothers Community at Mangere East, has been named a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the New Years Honour List by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Brother Patrick received the honour for his services to education.
2015 marks 40 years since the Private Schools Conditional Integration Act 1975 was passed by the New Zealand Parliament. Hence it is fitting that Br Patrick is honoured by Her Majesty on this occasion.
