Congratulations to Joya Nicolas who was awarded Young Citizen and Sportsperson of the Year at our Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony.

Joya was awarded for her outstanding ATAR result while spending up to 20 hours a week training for tennis. She has ambitions to graduate university while competing professionally.

The event started with a moving welcome to country followed by officially welcoming our newest citizens from 19 different nationalities.

Our Australia Day Ambassador, Jo Bridgen-Jones inspired the new citizens, challenging them to chase their dreams and goals in 2018.
