"Sometimes it's hard to imagine or dream beyond what you can actually see, so to get out in the community will hopefully give [children] a different perspective.
"I just want the kids to know that just because you don't come from a big town doesn't mean you can't make it."
Liddiard Road Primary physical education teacher Shaun Barbour was on hand to assist with the running of the clinic and said students were abuzz with excitement.
"It's really exciting for the kids to see the pathways and everything available to them, you hear about it a lot and get to hear stories about where they started," Barbour said.
"I think it also gives them a bit of goal-setting advice and shows them what can be achieved through hard work."
Students were also gifted Magpies shirts from Thwaites - a token gesture that Barbour believed could go a long way.
"When you've got older siblings or younger siblings and you come home with a Magpies shirt like the kids got today ... they were really excited about that," he said.
"Showing it a younger brother or sister or mum or dad is going to get them really excited, so you might get a few kids asking if they can play on weekends, which would be great."
The Magpies will hold a a super clinic on Saturday, Dec 9 at Traralgon Sports Stadium from 10am-12pm and an open training session from 2pm-4pm.
Thwaites ran drills, games and a Q&A during her visit to Liddiard Road Primary School on Tuesday.
