Student safety will be boosted at Killarney Vale Public School, with the NSW Government committing to hiring a new School Crossing Supervisor.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said Killarney Vale is among 96 schools across the state benefitting from a student safety program, with the new Supervisor to assist families and students crossing at Henricks Rd.
Woy Woy Public School is also set to welcome a new Supervisor, who’ll assist the community from Park Rd.
“We look forward to welcoming our new School Crossing Supervisors as they join 1,300 others across the state helping to keep primary school students safe,” Crouch said.
Acting Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, Paul Toole, said the NSW Government was putting the spotlight on road safety for the region’s youngest road users who are still getting used to the road rules.
“In January, 2019, we announced expanded criteria that would see 300 new School Crossing Supervisors fast tracked for primary schools across the state, so that even more students could safely cross the road on their way to and from school,” Toole said.
“Our School Crossing Supervisors are part of a suite of measures to keep kids safe, including reduced speed limits in school zones, high visibility safety treatments like signs, ‘dragon’s teeth’ road markings and flashing lights.”
