Narrogin welcomed 23 new citizens at an Australian citizenship ceremony, held on Friday, 17 September 2021, as part of Australian Citizenship Day celebrations.

The conferees from six different countries, including Nepal, India, Philippines, Vietnam, South Africa and England, became Australian citizens as part of a ceremony at the Narrogin Reception Centre held today.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Australian Citizenship Day.

Leigh Ballard, Narrogin Shire President said “Australian Citizenship Day is an opportunity for all Australians in their community, whether by birth or by choice, to reflect on and celebrate what’s great about being Australian”.

Australian Citizenship Day provides an occasion for individuals, schools, community groups and organisations to reflect on the contributions of citizens to our local communities.

Even with lockdowns across the country, it’s estimated that more than 140 ceremonies took place by local councils and community groups across Australia today, with more than 7,000 people invited to become new citizens.

“I encourage everyone in the Narrogin region to reflect on and affirm their Australian citizenship on September 17 as we warmly welcome our newest citizens,” President Ballard said.
