Rochester Primary School twins Alesha and Sienna Christie with their mother, Katrina, and little sister, Shae, after their first day at school.
Before the Christie twins started at Rochester Primary School on Thursday, they painted the school ground bright yellow.
The family spent the past few weeks painting bases of poles, bins and steps yellow, not just to brighten the school but to help Sienna who has a vision impairment.
Sienna was born with poor vision and had one eye removed and replaced with an artificial one when she was two years old.
Her mother, Katrina, said Sienna had low vision in her other eye and the bright yellow colour was the easiest for her to see.
Mrs Christie said Sienna knew her way around home, but the schoolyard would be unfamiliar territory.
She said the twin bond between Sienna and her sister, Alesha, was strong and they helped each other through their first day.
Mrs Christie said the first day at school for the twins was not as hectic as she imagined.
‘‘They had their bags packed for a week,’’ she said.
