School Daze!

SCHOOLDAYS are now school daze for confused teachers at Belmont Primary School, who have to cope with four sets of twins in the one nursery class.

Bemused teacher Sian Anderson even has to tell the difference between one identical duo by the colour of their shoes! She said:

"Stephen and Gary Scott (3) are really identical, so they have different coloured shoes so we can tell the difference.

"It’s okay as long as we can see the colour on the side. Greg’s have a green stripe and Stephen’s are blue.

"The twins usually tell us if we get it wrong."

Luckily for the teachers, Becky and Carly Conlay (3), have their brother Jarvis to help them out with the girls’ names.Miss Anderson said:

"With Kaitlyn and Bronwyn Evans (4), you can tell them apart. Kaitlyn had her fringe cut and that helped us out."

Mum Nichola Evans said:

"I can tell them apart but they are very close and both are very good friends."

She added "Most of the time!"

Last, but not least, are Robbie and Nicole Kevin (4), who obviously cause least problems for the teachers, being a boy and girl. Miss Anderson said:

"All the twins have got different personalities and even have different friends.

"As far as we know, it’s the first time we’ve had this many sets in the one class."
