Construction has started on an additional area of the college’s Field Events Area to improve the standard of facilities in the development of future teachers and coaches, ensuring the effectiveness of training sessions and competitions. These developments include;
the construction of a discus cage and ring
an additional discus ring
three Shot Put rings
and Long Jump/Triple Jump pit.
This will complement the newly constructed running track at the college as it will ease the excess traffic , enabling us to maximize on its quality. The track that is presently awaiting IAAF certification will be able to accommodate local and international competitions at the college and will aid in the development of athletics at the college and the wider nation.
“The field events area will help during competitions as far too often athletes are unable to compete at track meets because of limited facilities during the time allotted and the number of athletes registered to compete” said Marlon Gayle, Lecturer at G.C. Foster College.
More facilities mean more opportunities for growth and development of young athletes. They will benefit in field events for competition on the world stage.
G.C. Foster College continues to strive to become a world class training institution producing excellent teachers, sports and recreational professionals to meet local, regional and international standards.

October is observed as Breast Cancer awareness month and it is celebrated under the theme “Give Hope Save Lives.” On the 12th of October, members of the G. C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport family dedicated the day to the Survivors of Breast Cancer. Cancer, according to the World Health Organization, is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. From those figures, breast cancer accounted for 2.09 million cases.
This deadly disease starts when cells in the breast begin to grow out of control. These cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump. The tumor is malignant (cancerous) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, however it is very rare in men.
For years, families around the world have lost their friends and loved ones to Breast cancer leaving them heartbroken, and in pain. As usual, men and women locally are being asked to show support for breast cancer survivors and those battling the disease by wearing pink ribbons or clothing.
Survivors of breast Cancer are encouraged to never give up the fight, for the battle is not for the swift but for who can endure to the end. They are also encouraged to believe that they are stronger, smarter, and twice as beautiful than they ever could imagine.
Our thoughts, prayers, support and care are with those who are suffering from this disease
