School Enrolment Management Plan
Emerald State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth, Emerald State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future unless action is taken to manage enrolments. Emerald State School has limited ability to accept enrolments from outside the catchment area.
Student enrolment capacity
Emerald State School has a maximum student enrolment capacity of 438 students.
The number of students entering Prep in any given year must not exceed 50 in 2 classrooms, unless there are more than 50 students enrolling from within the catchment area.
Local catchment area
A school's local catchment area is the defined geographical area from which the school is to have its core intake of students.
The school's catchment map is available from
