School Crossings Victoria promotes safety and seeks uniformity of
school crossing operation, training and equipment throughout Victoria.

Latest News

With stage 4 restrictions imposed on Metropolitan Melbourne some Councils have made the decision to suspend the school crossing service to protect the staff and the community. You will need to check with the individual Councils on the operations of their service.

Stage 3 restrictions are in place for the rest of Victoria, which means possibly a scaled down service in these areas. Please check with your local Council to see if you are affected.

These restrictions have had a very sad impact on our school crossing community and a very emotionally taxing time on all. We ask that you respect your Council’s decision, in doing this you are supporting us. We also add that it is ok NOT to be ok, reach out if you need to and seek support. Be kind to one another and stay at home, we will get through this together.

This award is bienniel – every 2 years.
