With COVID 19 drastically restricting gatherings, it was an absolute pleasure to assist Councillor Angela Owen and her very professional team of volunteers in conducting this year’s Citizenship Ceremony at the Calamvale Community College. Every year, Councillor Angela Owen introduces a new and interesting facet into the ceremony; and this year, she did disappoint; welcoming all of the new Australian Citizens in their native language was impressive.
With the distances between every chair being measured, online attendance, temperatures being taken prior to entering the Calamvale Community College’s hall and the well organised check-in process ensured that the ceremony was safe as possible. All these additional requirements did not distract from a ceremony and was a pleasure to see that all attendees followed the additional safety requirements.
