The Fonz comes to Cornwall.
Henry Winkler is visiting Tregolls School in Truro as part of a campaign about learning difficulties.
The Happy Days actor is talking about his struggles in the classroom and dyslexia.
It is to try to raise self-esteem in children going through the same thing.
He is also meeting pupils in Redruth and Penzance as part of a UK tour.
It is as part of the My Way! campaign from the education charity Achievement for All, for which he is an ambassador.
The charity aims to improve outcomes in reading, writing and maths for vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
Henry told Pirate FM: "I wish someone had come to talk to me when I was their age.
"No matter how difficult school is, that has nothing to do with how brilliant they are, and the other thing is they all have greatness inside them.
"Self-esteem is the corner stone of being alive, so it is up to us adults to make sure a child's self-esteem is always buoyed, and then they will meet their destiny."
