YOU would be forgiven for seeing double at one school's graduation this week.

Four sets of twins - all boys - will graduate from Concordia Lutheran College among 64 students.

Caleb and Joshua Back, Nathan and Ryan Cherry and Daniel and Jephthah Ikudede are identical twins while Kai and Regan Johnston are fraternal.

The Back and Cherry boys started at Concordia in Year 7, joined by the Johnston boys in Year 8 and the Ikudede boys in Year 10.

The Cherry boys agreed their highlight had been sport. The Ikudedes had similar responses when asked what the highlight of their time had been.

"Meeting lots of friends and being a boarder has been pretty good," said Daniel, the boys boarding captain.

"Hanging out in boarding and establishing lifelong connections has been my highlight," said Jephthah, boys boarding vice-captain.

Caleb Back said his highlight was the 2015 German trip while brother Joshua said it had been engineering opportunities.

Kai Johnston's highlight was playing sports including football, cross country and AFL. Brother Reagan, who was sports captain, said his highlight was participating in the Kokoda Challenge.

All eight plan to continue to university or complete an apprenticeship.
