My child isn't school age yet but I see no problem with a high 5

Don't really see a problem with it. Ds1s school is on both sides of the road so there is a full time crossing supervisor. The ladies who do it are fantastic, they'll chat, say hello and I've even seen high 5's. As long as it doesn't impact on safety I don't have an issue with it.

It's an absolute joke that the council bowed down to that person who ALWAYS has an issue with everything and tried to stop something that apparently made everyone else happy. They reacted to 'a complaint'. Not even several it sounds like (and these complainers can usually rally a few other like minded people to back them up). I suppose there may have been a good reason for this one person to disagree with it, but as someone in the article said, instruct your child not to do it back if not comfortable! What is the world coming to???

if it was a female lollipop lady doing it, i bet nobody would have complained.. i really think sometimes in society men dont get a fair chance at things, its sad.

How bloody rediculous not to "touch" the students, its a flipping High 5!
Good on him for relating to the children to get them to WANT to cross with him, I know in my day it was "uncool" to cross with the lollypop man and you were a baby because you had to be helped across the road.
I hope the community rallies behind him and he continues
