ROTARY RESIDENTIAL COLLEGE 
Opens   Sunday  1/2/15 for the commencement 
in its  26TH successful year providing first-rate accommodation
 to country high school students. 

The Rotary Residential college was established in 1991
 to provide quality accommodation for country students.
 The college was originally for students who were unable to undertake
 specialized courses at their local high school.
 Now days the college caters for all rural & remote country students
 from all over Western Australia.
With the 2005 extensions we have expanded the capacity of the college
 to 95 rooms and consists of separate dorms for both boys and girls
 (each student has their own room which also boasts
 a private bathroom, desk, shelves and wardrobe).
We provide accommodation for those country students
 that want to attend Government High schools in Perth's metropolitan area.
 Many of the students do TEE subjects 
or specialized sports such as tennis, hockey, cricket, 
fashion and design, golf, netball, and aviation.
Many of the students are entitled to financial assistance
 through Centrelink's "Assistance for Isolated Students" scheme
. Others may not enjoy those entitlements
 and must pay the annual fee on a schedule.

During the school holidays the College is available to groups
 for holiday / sport event or other specialized event accommodation. 
Please contact the manager for more information.

2015 Budweiser Super Bowl Commercial “Lost Dog”









Where are the Unicorns
This ad for the French cable channel Canal,  
gives a little twist to the old story of why there are no unicorns in existence today.  
The setting is Noah’s Ark. 
About one second of the video may be NSFW,
 but fine by barnyard standards. 





A slightly unsure witness to a car crash kept saying things like,
 "I think the light was yellow," or,
 "I think it was still raining."
The cross-examining lawyer interrupted,
 saying derisively,
 "We don't care what you think.
 What do you know?"

The harried witness paused for a moment
 and then replied,
 "Then I may as well leave the witness stand.
 Since I'm not a lawyer,
 I can't talk without thinking."




A  farmer gets her sheep to create an Australian flag
Sheep farmer, Hanna Marriott, celebrated Australian Day
 by laying out food for her sheep in the shape of the national flag 
and the word, "OZ"
