THREE budding young scientists from Swansea Heads have their bags packed and are ready to start primary school.
Triplets Ryder, Ayla and Kalan Griffith, aged 5, have organised their uniforms, lunch boxes, shoes and school bags and will start their student life at Caves Beach Primary School next week.
Ryder, the mischief-maker of the three, wants to study bugs.
Kalan, the quietest of the three, loves dinosaurs and wants to become a palaeontologist.
Ayla wants to learn all about Egypt and become an archaeologist.
The triplets' mother, Kate Griffith, said the house would become a lot quieter with the three starting their education.
Statistics released by the NSW Department of Education and Communities in May last year show that kindergarten enrolments in Hunter and Central Coast public schools have increased in the past two years after decreasing slightly each year between 2007 and 2010.
The total number of public school primary enrolments in the Hunter and Central Coast regions has also risen in the past two years. However, the number of high school students enrolled has declined.
