In addition to swimming lessons for all students from Foundation to Year 6, Guthridge Primary School provides other specialist programs together with a range of enhancement and extra curricular activities.
School Camps are part of the education program for Grades 3 - 6 students. They give students the opportunity to experience living away from the family, to learn the need for co-operation, to use self-reliance as well as seeing different environments and practising some skills learned at school.
