SWIMMING, skating and bowling are the main activities of choice for kids these school holidays.

Dozens of kids were cooling off in the Ovens River during the week while others took to the skate park.

Wangaratta High School student Kaleb Christie said he enjoyed hanging out at the skate park with his mates, practicing new tricks on the scooter he received for Christmas.

“I like the thrill you get and meeting new people,” he said.

The bowling alley has also seen plenty of action which Rylan Coonan said was one of the many things he was doing these holidays.

“I’ve been watching the cricket, swimming at the river and just hanging out with mates,” he said.
