Our History

Taree Christian Community School, as it was then known, began in 1985 with 29 students and two teachers. The school was located on Wingham Road.

In 1988 the school moved to Kolodong Road after Mr David Richards gifted 10 acres to the Taree Baptist Church for use as a school site. By then it had grown to 120 students in 8 classes, and had commenced Year 7.

Our first senior class commenced in 1992 with seventeen year 11 students. The school library was constructed in 1994 and was also used by the Taree Baptist Church congregation as a place of worship on Sundays.

From 1996 until 2005 the construction of new secondary buildings took place including specialist facilities for science, computers, creative arts, technics and a learning centre.

2005 was a period of strategic planning, the College name was changed to Taree Christian College, and a new logo was developed to reflect a new focus on the College’s mission and vision, to empower students to make a difference in their world for Christ.

2011 was an exciting year for TCC, with the construction of a multipurpose centre featuring a full size basketball court, indoor climbing wall, theatrette and a dedicated drama learning area.

Over the last couple of years the College has constructed four brand new modern secondary rooms and two new kindergarten rooms. Interactive whiteboards have been rolled out across all primary and most high school class rooms.

“Since 1985 Taree Christian College has been providing young people with an education that acknowledges Jesus as Lord over all of Life”
