Forster Campus - Coming Soon
The Board of Taree Christian College is excited to announce its plans for a proposed new school at Lot 1 The Southern Parkway, Forster.
The growing school in Taree already caters for many students from Forster and further afield in the region.
The College Board considered that Forster, due to its growing population, would benefit from a new campus catering initially for students from Kindergarten to Year 7. It is expected that the demand for additional education choice will grow with potential future expansion.
After considering different sites within Forster and Tuncurry, a site was chosen that was within an urban growth area, had good access for all forms of transport and met the relevant zoning requirements.
The Board has engaged a team of consultants who are working on the documentation for the proposed new College campus. The team is engaging proactively with Midcoast Council to ensure the proposed development meets the Council’s requirements.
The new College will be known as MidCoast Christian College – Forster, but will have the original founding values and mission of Taree.
Head of Campus announcement
The College Board is pleased to announce the Head of Campus for our new Forster site is Mr Jason Reed.

Not initially, but a Canteen will be added at a later stage.
