Sydney Thunder has celebrated National Simultaneous Storytime at primary schools across the Thunder Nation.
Every year a picture book is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, childcare centres, bookshops and many other places around the country to promote the value of reading.
All-rounder Chris Green visited St Charles Primary School (Ryde) to read stories to students and deliver the Thunder Literacy Program.
Delivered to students across the Thunder Nation, the Thunder Literacy Program is designed to promote the importance of education and create a life-long love of learning for students.
“My skills were very rusty but I had a lot of fun and a lot of help from some amazing students. I haven’t read some of these books for a long time, so it was good to revisit my own childhood days,” said Green.
"Situations where players can come in and participate is a lot of fun. Just seeing the smiles on the kids' faces and being a part of the Literacy Program is so awesome."
Sydney Thunder is committed to making a real and meaningful contribution to the community, and believe that sport has the power to change lives.
