SOUTH COOGEE primary school has won its crossing guard.
After a two-year battle and an initial knock-back from police, the school has been told it will get a lollipop attendant within three months, to get students across the road to a supermarket car park.
“It’s an accident waiting to happen with students, parents and carers dodging Coles delivery trucks, the 530 Transperth bus service every 10 minutes, school traffic and local traffic coming to and from the Coles car park,” says parent Veronica Kilrain.
After initially being rejected, members of the school P&C counted cars and students over several days and collected 257 signatures, which were presented to parliament as part of a grievance by Cockburn Labor MLA Fran Logan.
A second application was approved.
