Shake It Up Founder Clyde Campbell has once again been announced as a 2018 Australia Day Ambassador.
Clyde will be making his Australia Day address and presenting the community awards at Willoughby City Council alongside NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney. The ceremony commences at 9.30am in The Concourse Civic Pavilion and will be followed by a free community bbq.
Each year, the Australia Day Ambassador Program sees more than 150 inspirational Australians speaking about what it truly means to be Australian at events across NSW.
Drawn from diverse fields such as the arts, sport, science, business, government and entertainment, they can be of any age but they all share the common traits of achievement through hard work, talent and a strong sense of patriotism.
The theme for the 2018 ‘Australia Day – Everyone, every story’.
We are a nation of stories and each the owner of our own tales. They’re formed by our experiences, backgrounds, ancestors and communities. All our stories are made to be shared, and
we weave them together to shape our home, Australia.
The theme encourages people to commemorate Australia Day in a way that reflects their connection with Australia, whether that be as an Indigenous Australian, as a newly immigrated Australian or as an Australian-born citizen. No matter where people come from or their experience of Australia, our national day is a day for everyone to observe or celebrate.
There are thousands of ways to mark Australia Day in your own way – by attending the fantastic events around Sydney Harbour and across our cities and towns, in your own backyard.
