Funding school crossing supervisors, especially those in the electorate of Glass House, has been a priority for local MP, Andrew Powell for some time.

The local Member, in conjunction with the P & C, has been lobbying the Government to fund the crossing supervisor positions at the Chevallum State School and late last year they were advised of a successful outcome.

“Paid crossing supervisors has been on my Fight For list since the start of 2015 so to see a big tick next to this achievement is wonderful news and an excellent result for the school community.

“Under the leadership of P & C President Ben Calder and with strong support from the school administration, we have been able to demonstrate how valuable these people are to the safety of our children, to the school and to the wider community.

“Our campaign to have these positions funded has highlighted the need to address this across the state and I am pleased to learn that due in part to our efforts, 75 additional school crossing supervisors will be funded over the next three financial years,” Mr Powell said.

The Chevallum State School crossing operates from 8 to 8.45am and 2.50 to 3.20pm each school day and will ensure greater road safety for the students for many years to come.

During the last few months I have had countless people in Glass House contact me with projects they would like to see delivered in our community. There is no shortage of projects we can work on together and my challenge as the local Member will be to ensure I work as hard as I can to accommodate the needs of people in all 20 of the individual townships that make up the Glass House electorate.

The Glass House ‘Fighting For’ wishlist will continue to be a work in progress and anything you identify in your community can be added to the list. All suggestions are welcome at any time so feel free to email my office as you identify something–

Some of the local issues we have compiled so far – .

  • Palmwoods/Eudlo – the North Coast Rail Duplication, more funding for sporting groups including cricket, soccer and tennis, upgrades to the Jubilee Drive intersection
