Hawea Flat School Travel Plan
To identify current travel patterns and to identify modes of transport students of Hawea Flat School were currently using to get to and from school and to identify any issues in regards to student safety, a parent survey was completed in July 2009.
A travel plan was then implemented.

The children of Hawea Flat School ran a cycle safety and fun week for the last week of term for 2009. This was followed up with the pupils getting involved in Bikewise Month in February 2010 by celebrating Go By Bike Day, by joining in on the newly-established cycle-train.
One year on, to ensure the implementation of the travel plan was receiving the desired results of increasing travel choices for children and that safety issues had been addressed, another Parent Travel Survey was carried out in September 2010.
To build a profile of travel choice over time for the children of Hawea Flat School, an annual 'hands up' Student survey will be done at a similar time each year.
This information can also help the School and Council monitor the school's travel plan programme.
