Echuca’s Trina Laffy will have three times as much time on her hands from today, with her triplets Hugo, Greta and Mae Byrne starting prep at Echuca Primary School.
The five-year-olds are among hundreds of district preps starting school today and join two sets of twins also beginning prep at 208.
The triplets will follow in the footsteps of their sister Ava, who is in grade 2 at the school this year.
Principal Paul Hon said he did not see triplets often.
‘‘We’ve got plenty of twins, but triplets is one out of the box,’’ Mr Hon said.
Trina said she was not nervous about her children starting school and they were more than ready.
‘‘They are very excited,’’ she said.
‘‘They’ll get tired, but they’re so keen to learn, too, I think they’ll be fine.’’
Hugo said he was looking forward to making friends and that he liked painting.
Greta is looking forward to playing with friends, reading and writing.
Mae said she liked painting and wanted to be able to to write.
‘‘I can write Mummy’s name,’’ she said.
