School year starts safer at Mudgeeraba Creek State School
Primary students at Mudgeeraba Creek State School began the school year even safer today after flashing school zone signage was installed over the Christmas break.
Member for Mudgeeraba, Ros Bates MP said she had delivered the signage to keep kids safe.
“I committed to installing flashing school zone signage at Mudgeeraba Creek State School at the last election, and as the school year kicks off, I have delivered on that commitment,” said Ms Bates.
“Flashing school zone signage reminds motorists to take care and slow down during school zone times, and on a busy thoroughfare like Hardys Road, that means keeping students safe.
“It is fantastic to see my ongoing advocacy for the safety of our schoolkids reach fruition, just months after we opened a pedestrian footbridge nearby across Mudgeeraba Creek.
“This is a great win for our local kids, aptly timed for the first day back at school.
“I couldn’t have done it without the support of our wonderful principal and P&C.”
Local parent Larissa Collins said 3 of her kids attend Mudgeeraba Creek and the signage would make a real difference.
“As a mum, it’s always a worry when your school is based at the intersection of two busy roads but flashing school zone signage should really help,” she said.
