Welcome G.C. Foster College

Welcome to G.C. Foster College

The G.C. Foster College of Physical Education & Sport, which operates a full-time residential institution, is established on approximately forty-one (41) acres of land, at Angels, Spanish Town, St. Catherine, Jamaica. It is located off the main highway leading from Spanish Town to Linstead and is approximately twenty (20) miles from Kingston, the nation‘s capital. It was the first of its kind to be established in the English Speaking Caribbean in September 1980. The College was named as a tribute to Gerald Claude Eugene (G.C.) Foster, a man of outstanding and versatile sporting talent, who dedicated himself to the pursuit of excellence in all his sport-related endeavors. With intelligence, discipline, study, application, perseverance and self-assurance, G.C.‘ overcame the near insuperable handicaps of training and performing in the under-developed environment of Jamaica in the early 20th Century. He went within a percentage point of the world record for the 100 yards dash and was a Nemesis of International stars, though Jamaica was not then a participant in international games.
