Council calls for more school crossing supervisors

2 Feb 2018

Council is seeking people to join its team of school crossing supervisors to help keep the roads safe near schools around the municipality.

Whitehorse Councillor Bill Bennett said Council was looking for enthusiastic people dedicated to helping others, with supervisors playing an important role keeping students and other community members safe during peak traffic times.

“Being a school crossing supervisor is a great way to connect with the local community. The role is well paid and all supervisors are provided with training, uniforms and equipment to carry out their important job,” Cr Bennett said.
Whitehorse has 94 school crossings, and supervisors work at the beginning and end of the school day. This role suits retired people, students and others who would like to have the bulk of the day free while filling a vital role in the community.

School crossing supervisors need to be available for 45 minutes in the morning and afternoon on school days. Council endeavours to place supervisors at crossings as close to their homes as possible.

Applicants for this role must be eligible for a Working with Children Check and have a valid driver’s licence.

For more information on the available positions, phone Council’s Community Laws Department on 9262 6333.
