Littlies enjoy first day of kindy

IT was smiles all around today for the first day of kindy at St Joseph's Primary School, Tweed Heads.

Not a tear was to be seen among the 59 children starting the first day of their school lives, or their parents.

Among the proud parents was Vanessa Jarrett, who was happy to see her twin boys Taj and Chase off on their big day.

“They were ready for it. They were born 13 weeks premature so it's a real achievement for them to be here today,” she said.

Tiffany A'Bell and her daughter Aleksia paused for one last hug in front of the camera.

When Aleksia was asked what she was looking forward to most about kindy she replied, “Colouring in and nothing else”.

Mrs A'Bell laughed and said, “I'm surprised ... I thought she was going to say lunch”.

Logan Chapman couldn't wait to get back to class after having his photo taken, asking his mother Narelle, “Can I go back yet?”

“He has an older brother and sister so he has been counting down the years to school time,” Mrs Chapman said.
