The haka came after Ms Ardern delivered a speech to the students where she remembered her time at the school.

She told a story of when she was on the debating team and they were worried their uniforms weren't smart enough during a semi-final against Auckland's King's College. 

"So flash with the blazers now," she said. 

"I never expected coming from the small town that I came from that I would be doing the job I'm doing now. You can do absolutely anything with the start you've had here."

The Labour leader spoke about her time at Morrinsville College and how it contributed to her career as a politician.

She was expected to follow the school visit with a walk down Thames St in Morrinsville.

Ms Ardern will be in Auckland for a visit to the Selwyn Village retirement community in Auckland tomorrow.
