Schools across NSW have been encouraged to apply for a school crossing supervisor in a new round of the school crossing supervisor program.
Executive Director of the Centre for Road Safety, Bernard Carlon said 300 additional school crossing supervisors are to be rolled out at NSW schools by 2021 as part of a three-year initiative to improve road safety for school children.
Mr Carlon encouraged all eligible schools to apply now to be considered for a crossing supervisor.
“They must have an existing crossing used by at least 50 children or 300 cars per hour in the morning or afternoon and the site needs to be a safe working environment for a school crossing supervisor,” Mr Carlon said.
“School principals are encouraged to submit an application form to the School Crossing Program by Thursday 9 April to be considered for this round of the program,” he said.
“Every child in NSW should be able to get to and from school safely, no matter where they live,” Mr Carlon said.
He said that last year – the first year of the crossing program – 80 new supervisors had been placed at schools.
