Orlando Pirates to launch Reading Stars book club and mini library for children at Orlando Stadium

Orlando Pirates Football Club will launch its Reading Stars Programme next week at Orlando Stadium.

The launch coincides with World Read Aloud Day, Wednesday, 24 February.

National reading-for-enjoyment campaign Nal’ibali will also be celebrating World Read Aloud Day at Orlando Stadium, where Yvonne Chaka Chaka will give a reading in isiZulu of Neo and the Big Wide World – a story written specifically for the day and available in all 11 official languages.

A mini library and reading clubs are also planned at the Orlando Pirates Learning Centre at Orlando Stadium.

“We are right at the beginning of this project,” Orlando Pirates Learning Centre manager Jude Capel says, “but we will have regular visits from first team players to read to students and explain the importance of reading to them.”
