Limehills School students were on top of the world today when they performed a mass haka on one of Invercargill's tallest buildings.

In the city for their Polyfest 2014 performance, they decided to take their talents to the people performing their haka at various locations around the town - including on the rooftop of the Kelvin Hotel.

Principal Jim Turrell said last year the students had performed ''flash mobs'' for various businesses around Invercargill, with their performances being well received and the footage posted on Facebook getting lots of hits.

''This year we wanted to do something even more spectacular and decided what better location to showcase our students and the Southland province than on top of the Kelvin.

''With the rolling hills and the countryside of Southland as the backdrop for our haka, it was quite amazing.''

Fifty students from year one to eight took part in the rooftop performance, which Mr Turrell said was a wonderful experience for everyone involved.

''This was a once in a lifetime experience for our students - the views, the excitement and the atmosphere was very special.''
