Ngā Mātāmua is our most prominent cultural group of Helensville Primary School. Our rōpū has never missed a Kaipara Festival which is what we strive to perform at every year. Our items are from Ngāti Whātua, and some from other areas in Aotearoa. Some of our waiata can be found on YouTube - see videos below. We have a Seesaw page where our performing items can be practised from home.
Ngā Mātāmua also performs at local events, and participates in Te Ao Māori tikanga through overnight stays at the marae. We are a group of 70 students this year, with a big passion for Kapa Haka.
