Five sets of twins are due to start Prep at St Kevin’s School Benowa this Tuesday 24 January, with the siblings eager to try out their new Prep playground.
The state-of-the-art playground features a rock-climbing wall, monkey bars, slide, large sand pit, water play creek bed with water pump, a pretend supermarket, spider web climbing frame, and quiet play huts.
While the school year kicks off on Tuesday – the five sets of twins in Prep will be the first to try out the new Prep playground on Wednesday 18 January.
The record number of twins will bring the school to 12 sets of twins across Prep, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, at the Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) school.
St Kevin’s School Principal John Downie said what better way to celebrate this record number of twins than by allowing the five sets of twins to experience the new adventure playground.
“It is definitely rare to see five sets in Prep, it’s certainly record breaking for St Kevin’s School,” he said.
“It’s exciting, but I know it will be a bit tricky for teachers to remember who is who, with some of the sets of twins being identical.
I look forward to getting to know them individually and learning how to tell them apart.
“As they always say, double the trouble, twice as much fun, and they certainly will have a lot of fun on this new playground.”
St Kevin’s School mum Emma Cox said her twins Evie and Eleanor, age 5, are excited to start school after having the opportunity to try out the schools’ new state-of-the-art Prep playground at their orientation days.
“The new Prep playground has really enticed and excited them about going to school, they really love the water play area,” she said.
“We’ve found the St Kevin’s Prep Readiness program to be fantastic and has shown the twins that school is a fun place to be.”
The super sibling sets are 10 of 442 students across the whole campus ready to start school next week at St Kevin’s School Benowa.
