Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson lines up his shot at the opening of the King’s High School hockey turf.
Before his shot he quipped that being both left-handed and on the left of the political spectrum he may struggle at the ‘‘right-hander’s game’’ of hockey.
He need not have worried, though, finding the back of the net with little trouble.
Mr Robertson said he was "very, very much" a proud old boy of the school, and during his days there he could not have conceived that the school would have a world-class turf on the grounds.
Deputy head boy Patrick Ward read a statement from Black Sticks coach and old boy Darren Smith.
In it, Mr Smith paid tribute to his high school coach, Dave Ross, who had provided him with the tools for a career in elite sports.
