Hinterland School Needs Your Signature To Keep Kids Safe

Near misses on road 'almost daily'

Hinterland School Needs Your Signature To Keep Kids Safe

A small school in the hinterland says it's only a matter of time before a child is hit by a car on the busy road outside.

According to Numinbah Valley State School mum Jess Slingsby believes there are near misses "almost on a daily basis" on Numinbah-Murwillumbah Rd.

The community has launched a petition calling for improved safety for its students and staff.

Ms Slingsby said at the moment it was tricky for motorists to see there is a school as they approach.

"We're at the end of a blind corner so people don't see the school until it's too late, so we want better signage, parking and a zebra crossing."

She says the school has been pleading for something to be done for nearly a decade.

"2009 I think the first letters were sent to local representatives, the minister for transport, police, council, so we've been pushing for a long time now."

The new online petition has gained more than 500 signatures in just a few days.
