Citizenship Ceremony

Pupils from Dalziel High School’s Computing and Social Subjects Departments were given the opportunity to attend a citizenship ceremony at North Lanarkshire Registry Office.

The ceremony was overseen by Laura Munro (Assistant Registrar) and by Provost Jean Jones and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, John McKenzie.

During the ceremony ten people who live in North Lanarkshire were granted British Citizenship, providing them with the rights of any British Citizen, including voting and having a passport.

One pupil said, “It was a lovely ceremony to witness as I didn’t know people could be awarded citizenship.

“It was nice to meet the Provost and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant John McKenzie, who was great at answering all our questions.”

The ten people who were granted British Citizenship were pleased and proud to have this honour bestowed on them.
