Enrolment catchment map
Ashgrove State School's catchment area is available on the Department's website EdMap at www.qgso.qld.gov.au/maps/edmap/.
A cathcment area is the geographical area from which a state school is to have its core intake of students. School catchment areas are calculated on equal distance principles by the Queensland Government Statistician's Office (QGSO), using specialist mapping software. QGSO calculates catchment boundaries by calculating the equal distance to and from the main entrances of neighbouring schools using the shortest, trafficable return route by road.
Catchment areas are not fixed or static and are reviewed annually taking into account any alterations in the preceding 12 months. Annual updates to catchment boundaries are necessitates as a result of one or more of the following factors:
- changes to road networks, eg new residential developments, new roads, joined roads;
- changes to road conditions, eg road classification, traffic lights, one way streets, roundabouts etc;
- changes in classification of the road - using trafficable roads only;
- new schools;
- land subdivision activity;
- updates to /and improvements in mapping software.
