Clontarf Academy pupils have enjoyed shooting hoops with returning Warrnambool Seahawks basketballer Xavier Johnson-Blount.
The American import was the star of the show at this week's after school training session at Brauer College.
Johnson-Blount said he showed students the skills he had brought back from the United States.
He said the activity was about teaching the students the foundations of basketball while also having a bit of fun.
Johnson-Blount has played three full seasons with the Warrnambool Seahawks, winning a Big V basketball championship in 2016.
Warrnambool Clontarf Academy operations officer Timmy Hunt said Johnson-Blount was a fantastic role model for the boys.
"Xavier is a terrific person. He's a great basketball player but he also has a real understanding of how important community is," he said.
"He was terrific with the boys and gave them some key messages, not just sporting messages but about life too. Messages about effort and leadership.
"The boys were really engaged with him during the session. There was quite a bit of energy in the room and I think a lot of the boys left with a smile on their face. They left feeling really good about themselves, which is a great result."
The Warrnambool Clontarf Academy involves male indigenous students in community engagement activities. The academy was established in 2010, operating from Brauer College and Warrnambool College, and caters for students from years seven to 12.
