AUSTRALIAN YOUTH AEROSPACE ASSOCIATION (AYAA)

Old scholar, Francesco Ciampa (2019), who is a University of Adelaide Ambassador and works with the AYAA, is visiting St Michael’s College on 6 May to highlight the careers in Aerospace. Students interested in attending the lunchtime talk in the LEC Auditorium are asked to send Ms Coorey an email to express their interest. Given the opportunities in SA for careers in Aerospace, we anticipate many students will be interested in attending.
