Op woensdag 19 juni om 8:49 UTC is weer een schoolcontact met David St-Jacques, KG5FYI, in het internationale ruimtestation ISS gepland. De school is dit keer in Tasmanië (Australië) gelegen en buiten ons bereik. Het contact is echter een telebridge verbinding die via het ARISS grondstation van IK1SLD in Italie loopt. Daardoor zal een groot deel van het contact ook hier in Nederland rechtstreeks te volgen zijn op 145,800 MHz in FM. Bijzonder is dat Claudio, IK1SLD, zijn activiteit en de audio van het contact rechtstreeks via internet doorgeeft. Het webadres hiervoor is www.ariotti.com. Zijn webstream start 15 minuten voor aanvang van het contact met ISS.
Hieronder volgt de voorstelling van de school en de lijst met vragen die door de kinderen gesteld gaan worden.

King Island District High School is located in the Bass Strait off the North West Coast of Tasmania. We cater for approximately 210 students from Kinder to Year 10. Our school is at the heart of our community, we value each student and their family. We have been striving to create resilient, innovative lifelong learners; our school has been on a learning journey with Literacy and Numeracy as our core fundamentals. Our students have the opportunities for on-island and off-island camps from Year 3 and up, we participate in sporting events in mainland Tasmania, we have students from Kinder to Year 10 being able to access specialist Music and Art lessons. We are grateful to have a well resourced MDT room, Computer Lab, kitchen which has then eventuated into a school café ‘The Rock Café’, which offers café style lunches, drinks and monthly dinners to our community giving our students first-hand experience of hospitality. We are also in the process of building our own golf hole to fit in with the islands golfing influx of late.
