THAT first day at school … It’s often a mixture of angst, excitement and anticipation – coupled with an organisational challenge for parents.
Well, just imagine increasing the stakes threefold!
That was the case for one local family last week when triplets Donna, Dimitri and Andreas Watson turned up for prep classes at Mornington Primary, Vale St, for the first time.
The two boys and one girl were popular arrivals.
“They are the only triplets at the school and we believe they are the first ever triplets here at Mornington Primary,” business manager Olympia Maselli said.
Dad Carl said the children got along well but were happy to be in separate grades in the school’s junior open learning centre.
“They spend enough time together and it will be good for them to meet up with other children,” he said.
The triplets will turn five on 17 February.
