The school holidays are coming to an end but thousands of Northland kids are taking part in the numerous school holiday programmes across the district.

Yesterday some of them were having a great time at the Whangārei Academy of Gymnastics' summer holiday programme at the academy's Kensington base.

Northern Advocate photographer Tania Whyte went along to capture all the fun.
