Pavlich talked to the school’s 640 students about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, drinking enough water, limiting their time spent playing computer games, and the importance of winning and losing gracefully.
‘Losing can be just as important as winning a game,’ he said.
‘You don’t always win and every time you lose, you learn from it and play better next time.’
Pavlich, who has kicked 600 goals in his 301 games for the Fremantle Dockers, also helped two classes of students improve their skills with a kick-to-kick session.
During the visit, the school also received 100 footballs, as well as a certificate of attendance for every student.
Piara Waters won a Perth-wide competition last monthin which parents and teachers voted on which primary school Pav should visit, beating stiff competition from surrounding schools.
