On Friday 2nd February, a few days back into the new school term for 2024, the unthinkable happened in Wodonga, a Crossing Supervisor was struck and killed whilst on duty. There have been no deaths on a school crossing since 1974 until that day.
Every single one of us here feels this loss and grieves with the Wodonga Community and Council.
Road Safety is everybody’s responsibility and a school crossing is a workplace, we will continue to advocate for drivers to slow down and travel at a speed they can stop safely.
We send our love and support to every School Crossing Supervisor, you do a wonderful job maintaining safety around schools. Please reach out if you need to talk, we are here for everyone.
