OUR Lady of Fatima School students and teachers will be seeing double this week.

Ethan and Joshua Barn, both five, are excited about wearing their school uniforms and meeting their Year 6 buddies. 

Their mother, Telina Clarke said the boys are eager to find out which teacher they will get, following their orientation late last year.

“They have met all the kindergarten teachers but are yet to find out which one is theirs,” she said.

Telina has made the tough decision to separate her boys.

“Ethan and Joshua will be in separate classes, it will be better for them to learn.

“How the teachers and the children will tell them apart being in the same uniform will be difficult. My boys will be wearing different coloured watches.” 

Telina said being separated will assist them to make new friends.

“It is important for each child to be unique and make friends independently,” she said. 

Telina’s friends Nicole Moffat and Louise Curry are also sending their twins to school.

Dylan and Isabella Moffat will be attending Sylvania Heights Public School while Hayden and Zara Curry are starting at St John Bosco Catholic Primary School, Engadine.
