Holiday fun in full swing

SCHOOL is out and the kids around the Gladstone region are already taking advantage of the warm weather with swimming gear making an appearance.

Kids will line the streets, and if they are not at the skate park, beach or movie theatre you might find them shopping with friends at the mall.

A lot is planned for these holidays and for many it will be their last school holidays.

Students in Year 12 will be making the most of their ‘freedom’ while also looking towards the end of Year 12 and new beginnings outside of school.

Children in Year 7 will get to relish the few months they have left at primary school while starting to get ready for life in high school.

Popular pastimes these summer holidays will include going to the beach, memorising every line of the highly anticipated movie the second instalment of Cats and Dogs, and trying out the latest tricks on the skateboard.

For parents hoping to fend off boredom these holidays, don’t worry because the Gladstone region is offering plenty.

There are some great shows coming to the Entertainment Centre, movies galore, BAM festival, markets, picnics and the old favourite – television.

So parents get ready, these holidays are set to be bigger than ever. The bell has rung and school is out.
