South Waikato News - - SPORT/NEWS -

Toko­roa Cen­tral School of­fi­cials are ask­ing peo­ple to use the school cross­ing when stu­dents are on pa­trol.

The call comes af­ter Toko­roa Cen­tral School prin­ci­pal Tina-Ma­ree Hooper and po­lice ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cer Con­sta­ble Louise Samuel of Toko­roa mon­i­tored the cross­ing last week.

‘‘One of the things that is re­ally an­noy­ing is that mem­bers of the pub­lic, who see that we are here and we are on duty, walk away (from the cross­ing) and cross the road,’’ Mrs Hooper said. She en­cour­aged peo­ple to use the cross­ing when in the area.

Con­sta­ble Samuel said it is against the law to not use the cross­ing.
