Three cousins start school to­gether

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Three cousins who were chris­tened on the same day in 2011 en­joyed their first day of school to­gether last week.

Ari­ana McTag­gart, Mol­lie Jack­son and Ciaran Jack­son joined St Bride’s Pri­mary School in Cam­bus­lang on Mon­day, Au­gust 15.

The trio, born within five weeks of each other, were ex­cited to en­ter the class­room, with the two girls in one class and Ciaran in an­other.

They shared the mile­stone with their beloved grand­fa­ther Frank Jack­son.

“It’s delightful they can share these mile­stones to­gether,” Frank told the Re­former.

“I walked two of them to school and I couldn’t keep up with them, they couldn’t wait to get to school.

“They have great per­son­al­i­ties and it’s great fun watch­ing them to­gether.

“Their older cousin Katie is eight. She’s at St Bride’s and she looks af­ter them all. They all get on like a house on fire, thank­fully.”

Frank, who lives in Hamil­ton Drive, was over the moon in 2011 when all three of his chil­dren had kids of their own.

Daugh­ter Mon­ica McTag­gart and her hus­band Steven were first to wel­come Ari­ana to the fam­ily, with son Gary and daugh­ter-in-law Paula wel­com­ing Mol­lie four weeks later. Just one week af­ter that Ciaran, the son of Do­minic Jack­son and his part­ner Kelly John­stone, was born.

Mon­ica has since given birth to two-year-old Aaron.
