Congratulations and Welcome to the City of Port Phillip
Written on the 22 July 2016
I was recently invited by the City of Port Phillip to welcome some of our newest Victorians into the local community as part of an Australian Citizenship Ceremony at the St Kilda Town Hall.
Citizenship celebrates Australian democracy, equality under the law and respect for each-others' beliefs.
Each ceremony provides a unique opportunity for formal identification within Australia - acknowledging responsibilities and conferring significant privileges, allowing citizens to participate fully in the community.
