THE Spearwood Primary School community will be seeing double with four sets of twins enrolled in 2019.

Kindergarten brothers Luca and Remy and pre primary pair Jaxson and Ryder are joining sisters Antoinette and Bora in Year 3 and Chloe and Claudia in Year 6 at the school, with the similarity of some sure to cause a few cases of mistaken identity among their teachers.

Carol Derbyshire, from Spearwood PS, said the small student body meant 7.5 per cent of the school’s students were now twins.

“Parents of young twins often find it easier to have the children in the same class as they adjust to school life; dealing with one teacher and classroom experience for both children can be less stressful,” she said.

“Teachers are learning the little quirks that make each child an individual to help them differentiate between them but there will, no doubt, be times when they trick someone and it’s usually a relief teacher that suffers that fate.”

A week into the new school year, Ms Derbyshire said the students were already getting stuck into fun and learning at the 105-year-old school.

“Students have settled well into their new classes and the new families are feeling welcome,” she said.
