Ray Stevenson, School Crossing Supervisor at Maldon Primary School, has taken out top honours in the School Crossing Supervisor of the Year Award.

Ray was named winner for Region 7 at a ceremony in Melbourne this week and was thrilled to receive the award.

“I was absolutely gobsmacked – it’s just fantastic. I love this job - it’s the best job I’ve ever had,” said Ray.

While excited about the award, Ray was quick to acknowledge the important role all the community plays in allowing him to do his work.

“It really recognises the team effort that goes into keeping the crossing safe. It’s not just the crossing supervisors – it’s also the students, parents, school staff, road users and local police,” he said.

Ray is clearly well loved by students and parents. Sharon Gellel is one of the many parents who nominated Ray for the award and was so happy to see him recognised.

“We are so proud of Ray. He’s just wonderful with the children and is always helping the kids and teaching them to cross the road safely,” said Ms Gellel.

“He always has a smile and is so friendly and caring. The award is very well deserved,” she said.

Ray has worked as crossing supervisor at Maldon Primary School for nine years.

Fellow School Crossing Supervisors Tony Peachey, Paulette Nicholson and Jason Glasgow were also nominated for the award.

“Our team of School Crossing Supervisors do an amazing job keeping local kids safe and we are incredibly proud of what they do,” said Bronwen Machin, Mayor of Mount Alexander Shire.

“It’s great to have their valuable work recognised by the community in such a special way,” she said.
