Looking out for our kids
The new School Crossing Supervisor program has been welcomed by schools and parents across Canberra.
20 new crossing supervisors are helping children to cross roads safely and improve traffic flow at 20 crossing sites.
Valdis Juskevics (pictured), who regularly supervises the crossing at Florey Primary on Ratcliffe Crescent, enjoys supporting the school community.
“Greeting the parents and children and receiving positive feedback tells me I am making a difference. That’s why I enjoy this job,” he said.
