STAFF and pupils at Bossley Park Public School are seeing double after three sets of identical twins started their first day of kindergarten last week.
Angelo and Alex Mona, Danny and Rafee Noor and Mia and Indianna Caballero were among the 63 new pupils at the school.
While many youngsters were hesitant about starting school, these sets of twins were thrilled.
"It's really fun. I really enjoy drawing and painting," Angelo, 5, said.
His brother Alex agreed. "It's fun starting school together, I have a friend — Angelo," he said.
Danny and Rafee, both 4, said they also enjoyed painting and drawing and were excited to make new friends.
"I'm looking forward to having lots of fun," they each said.
Mia and Indianna, 5, were equally as excited.
"We feel great," Indianna said. "We've met lots of people so far. We're big girls now."
Principal Graeme Brims said having three sets of identical twins start kindergarten at his school was unusual. "They've all settled in really well," he said.
"A the moment they have been paired with their years 5 and 6 buddy who looks after them and makes them feel comfortable.
"Some of the kids are anxious and nervous but some of them are so excited, they even sleep in their uniform."
He said this year there were 15 new enrolments, with students coming from Tasmania, Queensland and even England.
Kindergarten teacher Alicia Frech has also started her first school year.
The 22 year old has just graduated from the University of Notre Dame.
"I'm very excited and fortunate that I was given this opportunity," Ms Frech said.
"I'm looking forward to getting to know the children and learning as much as I can this year."
