School crossings

School crossing supervisors have a much-valued role in our community, helping students and parents cross the road safely during peak school times.

With 15 primary schools in the City of Port Phillip, it’s important that we all play our part in slowing down and staying below the required 40km per hour in school zones. When parking in a school area, remember to avoid parking 20 metres in front of, or 10 metres behind, a school crossing while the flags are displayed, unless otherwise signed.

The City of Port Phillip monitors school crossings to ensure the safety of pedestrians and students attending schools within the municipality. School crossing supervisors are allocated to schools on a needs basis. Supervisors are predominantly funded by the City of Port Phillip, with some funding from VicRoads.
