Congratulations to Ferncourt Public School on recently securing a dedicated school crossing supervisor! The Premier Street pedestrian crossing is situated on a busy street on the crest of a hill. There have been a number of near misses over the years and a growing school population and increase in parents driving kids to school during COVID 19 have added to the anxiety of staff, students and parents. Teachers at Ferncourt have been forced to act as traffic cops, just to keep kids safe. The need for a school crossing guard for Ferncourt Public was one of the key issues raised in the Summer Hill School Safety Survey and is just one of the many schools around our state who urgently need a crossing supervisor. Principal Rebecca Hollands, the school P&C and local neighbours have campaigned for a lollypop person for years and I was thrilled to recently visit Ferncourt to celebrate this important win for student safety. Thank you to Rebecca, Ferncourt P&C, and everyone who raised the issue in the School Safety Survey. One more crossing in the inner west is safer for kids thanks to your passion and persistence!
