Students from the Trinity Christian School in Canberra are to talk to the astronauts on the International Space Station during a planned ISS contact to take place during the WIA Centenary dinner in Canberra next month. School principal Carl Palmer VK1TP/VK2TP is very pleased that ten students will be given such an honour to attend the WIA Centenary dinner and talk with an astronaut on the International Space Station. The school at Wanniassa, in the beautiful Tuggeranong Valley at the southern end of the Australian Capital Territory, will also celebrate its 30th anniversary next month, adding to what will indeed be a very special occasion.

Australian ARISS Coordinator Tony Hutchison VK5ZAI is finalising arrangements for the contact between the International Space Station NA1SS, and the WIA special callsign VK100WIA, on the evening (Australian time) of Saturday the 29th of May during the WIA Centenary dinner.
