St Josephs Catholic Primary School have advised there is now a crossing guard on Rosa Street outside the school. The guard will be there before and after school for the services of pedestrians using the crossing on Rosa Street. Carers and children from Oatley Public School are also welcome to use this service when crossing Rosa Street at St Josephs.
Remember to reinforce with kids the importance to Stop, Look, Listen and Think when crossing a road, even when there is a crossing guard. When the crossing guard is on duty, anyone wanting to use the crossing should stop back from the entry to the crossing and await instruction from the guard. Only cross once instructed.
For drivers on Rosa Street, remember to wait for the guard to clear the crossing and remove the sign from sight before entering the crossing. Instructions by the guard should be followed – heavy penalties apply for not complying with laws on crossings.
