THEY are triplets, have the same personality, similar friends and two of them are even going for the same occupation.

Annabelle, Christian and Mitchell Cassell from Xavier Catholic College attended their formal together at the Beach House Hotel in Scarness on Friday as the only set of triplets.

The eldest by a minute, Annabelle said she and her brothers were really close and rarely had misunderstandings.

"We are pretty considerate of each other's needs and the only thing we fight about is who gets the TV remote," she said.

With no family history of having twins or triplets, the three siblings were conceived traditionally and were born on June 17, 1997.

Annabelle said growing up together had been fun and there wasn't a downside to being a triplet.

"The best part about being a triplet is you never have to do things by yourself and with school, if one of us gets stuck on an assignment, the other two will help out," she said.

Although they've never been in the same class in school, they like hanging out with each other's friends and get along well.

While the two brothers are into fitness and would like to join the defence force, Annabelle is still undecided.

"I love the arts and enjoy drawing but I'm not sure what I'd pursue," she said.
