“Children’s Crossings are Cool”

  1. A children’s crossing is a legal crossing when two flags are in place.
  2. Children and adults who are crossing at a children’s crossing must comply with the supervisor’s directions.
  3. You must always stand behind the yellow line.
  4. Never follow the children’s crossing supervisor out onto the crossing – WAIT! THEY MUST GO OUT FIRST, WHEN THEY HAVE BLOWN THEIR WHISTLE (2 SHORT BLASTS) IT IS SAFE TO CROSS.
  5. DO NOT ride bikes across the crossing, bounce a ball, fight, muck around or run – WALK QUICKLY AND SAFELY.
  6. ALWAYS stay within the lines of crossing and walk in front of the supervisor (never behind them).
  7. The children’s crossing supervisor will always wait until it is safe before they walk out and blow their whistle.
  8. Cars are NOT allowed to park on the crossing. If the area is not clear you must pull up behind the white line and wait till you have clearance before proceeding.
  9. Always be alert and listen to what your children’s crossing supervisor says.
  10. It is ILLEGAL to double-park outside a school – you will be caught.

Uniform Reminders

The Fountain Gate Secondary College uniform policy clearly states that any non-uniform items should NOT be worn at school.

If a student is seen wearing a non-uniform item, they will be asked to remove that item and hand it in to the Sub-School where the item will stored and the student’s name recorded. That item can be collected at the end of the day. Examples of items include:

  • Hoodies
  • Ear phones
  • Coloured T-Shirts
  • Caps
  • Beanies

Scarves – can be worn but must be navy blue, black or white. Scarves with logos or brands are not acceptable. The scarves must be removed for Technology classes.

Students who repeat the behaviour of wearing non-uniform items will receive an appropriate consequence.
