In the spirit of the message of Harmony Week everyone belongs, Hunters Hill welcomed eight new Australian citizens during a special Citizenship Ceremony on Wednesday evening (22 March).

The conferees from Malaysia, Syrian Arab Republic, Iran, Indonesia, Mexico, Britain and Colombia, were joined by family and friends as they took the pledge of loyalty to Australia and received their Certificates before Mayor of Hunters Hill Zac Miles in a ceremony at Weil Park.

Mayor Zac Miles was honoured to officiate the Citizenship Ceremony.

“It is a great honour to be a part of such a significant day for these residents and a proud moment for our Council to officially recognise our new Australian citizens.”

“I offer my warmest welcome to our new citizens and on behalf of all Australians, I offer you my best wishes as you share in our country’s future,” said Clr Miles.

Amelie Matthews led the singing of the Australian National Anthem.

Conferees were joyous to take their final steps to becoming an Australian in the ceremony.

“Just such a beautiful ceremony and country. I am so proud to be part of the Australian community and share the values.” said conferee Ivonne Nivia.

Waed Haddad, conferee from Syrian Arab Republic, re-affirmed this sentiment.

“Such a lovely ceremony…a dream come true”, said Waed. “I also love the gift. So special to have something from the Australian soil.”

Hunter’s Hill Council congratulates all of the new Citizens and thanks everyone who attended the ceremony last night. As always, the Citizenship Ceremony was a special and moving experience for all involved.
