Moira Shire welcomed its newest Australian citizens at a ceremony held on Thursday 15 July at the Cobram Civic Centre.

Mayor Libro Mustica officiated the ceremony and said it was a proud and significant moment for the new citizens who now reside in towns throughout the shire.

“Hailing originally from countries including the Philippines, India, New Zealand and Malaysia, our new citizens have already become integral members of our local towns and are active members of their communities,” Cr Mustica said.

“Through our Australian citizenship we all share a commitment to values including mutual respect, equality, freedom of speech and religion, the rule of law, and democracy.

“Our citizenship means we all belong to the Australian family and we can all enjoy the responsibilities and privileges of living in this country and having a say in its future.”
