Spirit of the ANZAC: Year 9 students from Forbes High School travelled to Orange re- cently to see the Spirit of the ANZAC Cen- tenary Experience. The exhibition contains various interactive displays, which allowed students to take a self-guided tour through 12 different zones; each zone representing a different aspect of Australia’s involve- ment in World War I. The students learned how and why Australia became involved in the war, they saw first hand experiences from young men and women involved in the war and the aftermath it had on Aus- tralia and the young people who fought to defend it.

There will also be modern health and wellness spaces, dining areas, an activities room and communal gathering spaces.

Here’s your chance to fly: Plummeting towards the ground at 180km an hour from 14,000 feet above. The Phoenix is sending a reporter to see what all the fuss is about. Skydiving is a popular bucket list item and there is a good reason why – the adrenaline rush of free falling is but one. Bucket loads of emotions enter while dangling from a plane and then falling towards earth: excitement, fear, adrenaline, more fear, excitement, awe, gratitude, exhilaration and pure amazement!
Adrenaline junkie or not, skydiving is a chance to overcome your fears and feel free. Places still available this weekend to Skydive in Dubbo with Skydive Oz. www. skydiveoz.com.au/skydive-dubbo/
