WATCH: Kiwi students have a blast with their principal in 'wholesome' carpool karaoke trip

"Such an awesome connection!"

Footage of a Kiwi principal singing with his students 'Carpool Karaoke' style is getting a whole lot of attention online.

Paraparaumu College principal Mark Robinson took on the role of James Cordon, joining his head students in a sing-along as they cruised around town.

“Hey guys, I’m just headed out for lunch, did you want to come for the ride?” Robinson asks in the video.

The four students pack into the car before breaking into an incredible medley of hits, including Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline,’ Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean,’ and ‘You’re Welcome’ from Disney’s ‘Moana’.

Their incredible playlist includes Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline,’ Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean,’ and Dwayne Johnson’s ‘You’re Welcome’ from Disney’s ‘Moana’.

According to Stuff, we have Head Boy Oscar Moore to thank for filming the whole thing from the passenger seat, and later editing the video.

Principal Robinson said he was already “shocked” at the number of reactions to the video on the school's Facebook page.

“How absolutely lovely to see these young people really enjoying themselves and well done to the principal for getting involved with his students,” said one commenter.

Another added: “Love it. Such an awesome connection and I love the singing 😉.”

“Very cool and entertaining!!! Love seeing the principal being so involved with the children and having a blast! 🥰,” wrote a third.

While a fourth added: "This is so wholesome."

Although he’s been teaching for 34 years, Robinson only started at the school in term 2 of 2024.

“I think that virtually all principals will say that quality relationships are something that’s important about the job,” he told Stuff.

He then urged other principals around the country to have a go at getting involved with their own students' projects.

“Go for it, be brave. It’s great fun, and it’s a great way of celebrating our relationships in school,” he said. “Our young people are gold, celebrate that.”
