Thousands of exhausted mums and dads will this week enjoy the relief of shipping the kids off to start the new school year, with staggered returns to the classroom from Tuesday.

While some of Sydney's private schools welcome students back on Tuesday or Wednesday, public school kids start back on Thursday.

Across the state, 63,000 four and five-year-olds will start kindergarten in government schools alone.

For the parents of the approximately 1500 twins due to start school this year, getting ready for that first big day is double the trouble and costs twice the price, and at Trinity Catholic Primary School in Kemps Creek, two families are doing just that.

St Clair mum Annette Nunes and husband Jordan have spent "easily over $500" getting shoes, uniforms and equipment for five-year-old twins Eleanor and Oliver, who will join brother Harry, 7, at school.

"I actually bought a lot of second-hand uniforms from the school office which has been a massive help," Mrs Nunes said.

The Nunes have become fast friends with fellow Trinity parents Cynthia and Daniel Pajak, who also happen to have twins, Jacob and Noah, and an older child, Imogen, in Year 2.

"I feel like I need a big, giant, gold star when they start school," Mrs Pajak said.

Both mums have joined the Australian Multiple Births Association in calling for all NSW shools - private and public - to allow parents to have input into whether twins are seperated or kept together in kindergarten classes.
