Nothing gives me more pleasure to see the excitement in the eyes of our about to be "New Aussies" as they they take their "Pledge of Allegiance", the final step to becoming an Australian Citizen.
Randwick Town Hall this evening was filled to capacity with family, friends and special guests for a fantastic evening that will be remembered by our newest citizens for the rest of their lives.
It was a delight to join Randwick Mayor Scott Nash, Kingsford Smith Federal member Matt Thistlethwaite MP, to be a part of this wonderful event. Australia’s multicultural society is at the heart of what makes our country so great, and by continuously learning and embracing each other’s cultures and experiences we can ally grow together. I congratulate our newest citizens and welcome them as a fellow Australians.
