Ebony Berges, Zoe Holloway, Lizzie Penney, Kyeasha Ross and Victoria Murphy having fun on a sizzling hot Friday.
There were some very cool kids at the Deniliquin Swim Centre on Friday.
The Outside Of School Hours (OOSH) vacation care program coordinators brought the children to the local pool to chill out as temperatures climbed to 41.9°C.
OOSH assistant Rachel Bull said the group had spent more time at the pool than originally planned, due to the extreme heat.
Despite all that time in the sun the children were not getting sunburn, donning shirts and sunscreen for protection.
Miss Bull said the OOSH program has averaged about 30 children a day since Christmas.
Along with swims and water games, OOSH has some great activities planned for the kids this week.
They will make rice paper rolls, tie-dye clothes, make a paper mache pinata, and enjoy a disco and light show.
In coming weeks the children will take part in Muay Thai, a treasure hunt at Willoughby’s Beach, a scooter day and an excursion to Shepparton.
This year OOSH is being held in the old hall at Edward Public School while its new premises is under construction. The program is co-ordinated by Intereach.
