Citizenship ceremony

    Recommended Posts

    Guest sarahsmartiepants

    We did ours last night, we did it in the Onkaparinga area as our council had done their quota for the year.

    Filled out the election forms at the end so will be able to vote!!!!!!

    And they laid on a buffet after, didnt go near that though (I was good Corneilia). There was something that looked like FAIRY BREAD:huh:.

    We also got a plant each, which was handy as I have some planting to do in the garden and would of had to go to bunnings, this has saved me the trip! But at about $240 a plant I think i would have got cheaper at Bunnings!:biglaugh:

    I didn't say a word Sarah, but well done!!! x

     

    I wouldn't put your plant in the front garden though, for fear of someone sitting in the middle of it again!

     

    Ps Congratulation you Aussie x

    Congratulations Sarah!!

     

    And well done on avoiding the buffet - it is renowned for being truly appalling!

    Hey, thats great news Sarah!! So what's with the plant? Why do they give everyone a plant each? Has it some kind of symbolic meaning? :err:

    Congrats on doing the do. How does this work with your children? Do they now automatically become citizens or do theu have a test to pass as well????

    Many, hearty congratulations on the citizenship...something a lot of us are still aspiring to. Can I just check for future reference? It is five years you have to live here before you can apply, isn't it? (GULP, got to get the PR first!)

    Thanks,

    CONGRATULATIONS! :notworthy:

    So it was worth walking through the market for then to get a free plant? :biglaugh:

    Hoping to see you soon but have had to postpone my flight :sad: so will be a bit longer than anticipated.

     

    At this rate I'll have missed winter :biglaugh: doesn't make up for missing B and your cheeky son though!!!!!

    From 18 up you must sit the test costing $240, between 16and 18 you do an "interview":biglaugh:, they ask no questions but for that it is $120.

    We had PR visa so waited 2 yrs to apply.
