School Crossing Supervisors

13/06/2014

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the School Crossing Supervisor Scheme (SCSS)—keeping Queensland children safe as they travel to and from school each day. Our own Crossing Supervisor, Hazel Charles, has been 'holding the sign' for 27 years! We thanked Hazel on our Whole of School Assembly this morning by presenting her with a certificate; Allan Dixon and Cat Mosely from Main Roads were present.

When first launched in 1984, the SCSS was adopted by 255 schools. Today, Queensland has more than 1900 school crossing supervisors working across 1214 crossings at 653 schools. 

For 3 decades dedicated school crossing supervisors have played an important role in teaching children road safety skills and laying the foundation for life-long road safety awareness.
The scheme is a combined effort between the Department of Transport and Main Roads, the Department of Education, Training and Employment, schools, local councils and the Queensland Police Service.
School crossings supervisors are a vital part of local school communities. In fact, there are 14 school crossing supervisors who will celebrate 30 years of valued service in their local school communities this year.
So next time you drop off or pick up the kids, take a moment to thank your school crossing supervisor—we’re sure they’ll appreciate it.
