IN early June, the Glenorchy Council hosted a Citizenship Ceremony at KGV to welcome 55 new Australian citizens.

Guests were entertained with performances by the Glenorchy Concert Brass and the Celebrate Nations Choir.

The choir performed the National Anthem and ‘I am Australian’.

Acting Mayor Bec Thomas presided over the event and enjoyed hearing stories from new citizens about what brought them to Australia.

“The journey to Australian citizenship is different for everyone,” she said.

“We are lucky to have so many residents from a diverse range of cultures and experiences.

“Our city is a new chapter for many, and it is a privilege for me to present them with their certificate of citizenship and congratulate them on behalf of the Glenorchy community.”

Glenorchy Council hosts several citizenship ceremonies throughout the year.

The next council citizenship ceremony is due to be held later in the year in September.
