Representatives of HC Košice visited Roma children. In an unconventional role.

At a private elementary school on Galactic Street in Košice - Above the lake there were really unprecedented things at the beginning of the week - representatives of HC Košice visited virtually all positions: executive director Rastislav Rusič, coach Peter Bartoš, hockey striker Roman Žitný and manager Vojtech Petty. The aim of their visit was as exceptional as the visit itself: reading fairy tales to Roma children. While our representatives were reading engaging stories in Slovak, Roma college students present in Roma language. The children were to decide who read nicer, but in the end, there was no evaluation at all - in a magical atmosphere, everyone forgot ... Just like the scenario of the whole visit, which eventually took place entirely unplanned and spontaneously. "This work is dominated by improvisation," smiled Renáta Pankievičová from the Civic Association Ďakujem - Paľikerav. “Reading is extremely important for Roma children and it is the participation of the personalities of a renowned hockey club that can be one of the motivating factors for our men. And not just for reading. We are all extremely grateful for this participation. ”

The  Book club  Paľikerav is worth mentioning because it is a handful of young people who meet regularly twice a month to share their book experiences. They even upload book review videos on their FB page. Miška has read the epochal horror Contact and although she usually prefers romance, she liked the horror movie.
