New principal for 2022: Prasad Patchigalla

Thursday, 2 Dec 2021

The Trust Board of Tyndale Park Christian School is pleased to announce that Mr Prasad Patchigalla has been appointed as the new principal from 2022. We praise God for His provision in guiding Mr Patchigalla to apply for the position.

Prasad Patchigalla is a family man who lives in Ormiston with his wife Hannah and two daughters. He is an active member of Ormiston Baptist Community Church, supporting its mission to bring Gospel renewal to South and East Auckland. Before moving to Ormiston, Prasad and his family lived in Botany for 15 years. Over this time, they attended Elim church, and his children attended Elim school.

As a teenager, he responded to an invitation at the end of the gospel message based on Romans 3:23 and 6:23. Even though he was born into a Christian family, he realised the need to make a personal confession of his faith in Jesus. He was actively involved in a Christian student movement to spread the Gospel to students on college campuses in India. Attending or leading bible studies have been an integral part of his spiritual journey. He was equipped with various aspects of Christian life and ministry and felt grounded in the word of God.

After migrating to New Zealand, Prasad taught in private, state, and state-integrated Christian schools for over 20 years. You may look up Prasad’s LinkedIn profile for details of educational qualifications, school-wide educational leadership capabilities, and Christian service through the local Church.

Prasad is excited to join hands with the Trust Board to provide Christ-centered education by guiding students and staff on their journey of learning, growth, and faith.
