IT’S back to school for students across Penrith, with Emu Plains triplets Georgia, Ella and Daniel Jones getting ready to make the jump into high school.
The triplets, who are turning 13 this year, will attend their first day of year 7 at Penrith Anglican College today.
They are joined by their older brother who will sit for the HSC this year.
Despite the extra washing up and costs for school supplies, dad Chris said that there are upsides to having triplets — they help each other with homework and will all finish school at the same time.
Georgia said that she and her siblings are close and look out for each other at school by helping with homework and borrowing equipment.
She said that they have been in the same classes before and that she and sister Ella hang out with the same group of friends.
Although the change to high school is a big one, Georgia said she is not worried.
‘‘I think the work’s going to be a bit harder but I reckon it’ll be fun,’’ she said.
