Safety for children in Penrith is our number one priority as Braddock Public school will become eligible for a lollipop supervisor thanks to 300 more lollipop supervisors to be provided by the Liberals & Nationals Government.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Education Minister Rob Stokes and Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres said the initiative would offer more protection for children and improved visibility for motorists.

“Keeping kids safe is our number one priority and every child in NSW should be able to get to and from school safely,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Mr Stokes said under the previous requirements, a crossing had to be used by 300 cars per hour in the morning or afternoon as well as at least 50 students to be eligible for a supervisor. Under the change, they will only need to meet one of the criteria.

“This initiative means more schools will be eligible for a lollipop supervisor, including 69 schools that had previously applied and were found ineligible,” Mr Stokes said.

Stuart Ayres said, “Braddock Public school which previously didn’t qualify for extra help, will now meet the criteria making our children even safer."

“Parents and teachers alike have been asking me to do more to ensure our kids are the safest they can be at Braddock and this announcement is delivering on that,” Stuart Ayres said.

The School Crossing Supervisor Program currently funds up to 1200 supervisors at around 800 crossings across the State.

School zone safety has always been a priority for the Liberals & Nationals Government. There is now at least one set of school zone flashing lights for every school in NSW. More than 5500 school flashing lights have been installed.

No child pedestrian has been killed in an operating school zone for the past five years.
