I just thought what a great idea because a lot of
us haven't had a chance to affirm our citizenship
that way.
And so we were really excited to have the opportunity
to say those really important words about
Australia.
To have those special feelings and make
it something that was really memorable.
And whose laws I uphold and obey.
All - And whose laws I uphold and obey.
Fantastic. Well done. Round of applause.
(APPLAUSE)
When I was saying the affirmation it made
me feel really proud about being Australian.
It made me feel, and remember how lucky we are
to live in Australia, coz other countries don't
have what we have.
Organising the affirmation ceremony was
really easy.
We had the cards, the children read off them.
We made it our own by having our choir
sing.
(SINGING) I am, you are, we are Australian.
I think the children really enjoyed it, the ones
who hadn't had the chance to have a
citizenship ceremony for themselves.
That made that something they could
remember. To be able to say the affirmation,
to take home the card and to remember that, I
think they'll really remember that as something
special that happened today.
