The odds of having twins are roughly three to four in every 1,000 live births however St Mary's Primary School in Yoogali is defying the odds, with three sets of twins currently enrolled in its 2021 kindergarten cohort.
With a population of only 145 students at St Mary's, and 26 in this year's kindergarten class, the odds of this occurring are even rarer.
School principal Annette Reginato said all three sets of twins had a 'beautiful, gentle nature'.
"Our kindergarten twins really do look after and support each other quite a bit," Mrs Reginato said.
According to Mrs Reginato, the enrollment of three sets of twins was a big surprise to the school.
"We didn't see them coming but they really are a terrific addition to our beautiful school community," Mrs Reginato said.
Twins Jack and Olivia said that they loved having a twin sibling.
"I love my sister because she spends time playing with me," Jack said.
"Having my brother is great because I always have someone to go out and play and have fun together," Olivia said.
Hayan and Harvi shared these thoughts, telling The Area News that having a twin was great because it always meant that they had someone to play with, have fun and draw and be creative with.
Identical twin sisters Layla and Anastasia said they always had lots of fun together.
"Playing with her is the best, we always have a good time," Layla said.
"Layla and me do everything together," Anastasia said.
Nicola Vitucci, mother of Layla and Anastasia said 'nothing could compare' to the bond between her twin daughters.
"It's very comforting knowing the girls have each other, it's really a bond like no other," Mrs Vitucci said.
"They are good friends, nothing can compare to it."
And while the school community is like a family, Mrs Reginato said it took some time for classmates and teachers to identify all three sets of twins correctly.
"It certainly took us all a little while to get to know them, but all three sets of twins have their own little features that make them unique and that have helped us identify them over time," Mrs Reginato said.
