David Hasselhoff visits school to promote education

London: Actor David Hasselhoff paid a surprise visit to a school to highlight the importance of education.

The former `Baywatch` star, who has been dating Welsh beauty Hayley Roberts since they met on the set of UK show `Britain`s Got Talent` last year, thrilled youngsters at Pengeulan Primary School in the town of Mountain Ash when he turned up at the facility unannounced, reported Contactmusic.

"Awesome staff teachers and The Children of the future!! Thank you it was an honor!" he posted on Twitter.

A message on the school`s website reads, "The pupils of Pengeulan had a wonderful surprise when David Hasselhoff unexpectantly `popped in` for a visit when travelling through South Wales.

"He talked with the pupils, answered their questions and encouraged them that it was `Cool to be in School`. He finished off the visit having photographs with pupils and staff."
