A video of a passionate school Haka in Palmerston North has gone viral online.

The video was originally posted by Palmerston North Boys' High School and shows the school performing a Haka to the Year 13 boys leaving the school at the end of this year. 

The school said it was "both an acknowledgement of their contributions to the school over their time here and also a challenge to do their best in the upcoming NCEA external examinations."

The Year 13 students also performed a Haka in response to the Haka from the junior students.

The videos of the Haka have also been picked up by Facebook pages including 'Māori Worldwide' and have already received nearly 400,000 views across the pages. 

One person commented on the video: "Mean thanks for reaffirming we have the best culture in the world".
