Citizen awards and ceremonies

Following the new direction provided by the Commonwealth Government banning indoor gatherings over more than 100 people, the City of Charles Sturt has decided to cancel our Citizenship Ceremony scheduled for Tuesday 24 March at 6pm.

We apologise in advance to the candidates who were invited to attend this special occasion and know the importance that is placed on becoming an Australian citizen. However the safety and wellbeing of our candidates, our other residents and broader community are our priority at this point in time.

We will continue to take direction from the State and Federal Government during the COVID-19 Pandemic and as such candidates will be contacted when they have been allocated to a future ceremony.
