Children and their parents made the rounds at the Learning for Life event for Literacy Day at Cassie Hall yesterday, Jan. 25.

Several tables with different activities related to literacy, numeracy and other things were set up in the school gym, including yoga for children on the stage, and spread down a couple of hallways too.

This year's event was held all in one place as last year's in different locations wasn't as well received.
