Double trouble

MAFFRA Primary School has welcomed an incredible six sets of twins to its prep classes.

Ari and Darcy Cater, Taj and Will Gray, Bella and Lahni Hocken, Mackenzie and Miranda Laskowski, Hannah and Lily Russell, and Charlotte and Olivia Sargent all started school last week.

Principal Chet Dervish said prep teachers were ready for the challenge.

“We’re very excited to have all these twins,” he said.

“We have four other sets in other years, but six in one year level is a very special event.”

All the children seemed excited to get started at school, and most of the siblings are in the same classes.

Four of the pairs are identical.

The twins make up more than 25 per cent of the cohort, which Mr Dervish said was incredible.
