WHEN TO STOP AND WHEN TO GO, A RAIL SAFETY MESSAGE DELIVERED WITH A HO, HO, HO!
Members of the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) were in Mount George this week (Tuesday) sharing Christmas good cheer and a very important rail safety message from Santa.
With the school year nearly out – Santa and one of Santa’s helpers visited Mount George school to talk staying safe near the rail corridor and brought along some presents for the kids.
“Children are a big influence on wider family safe behaviour and parental decision making, so it was great to share the rail safety message at the same time as bringing a little Christmas cheer to a valued community alongside our network,” ARTC’s Acting GM Operations – Interstate Cath Bowlzer said.
“Remembering when to stop and when to go at railway level crossings is a good way to stay safe this holiday break, as is remembering that the railway corridor is not a safe place to play. The children met Santa and some of the local Taree/Dungog team who we performing works nearby. They had the opportunity to climb aboard the road rail vehicle and talk to the ARTC staff about their jobs.
“It was great to visit Mount George and we really appreciated the opportunity for the kids to explore and learn about Santa’s modified sleigh and the chance to wish everyone in Mount George a safe, happy and enjoyable holiday period,” Ms Bowlzer said.
