The Rotary Residential College is on land leased from the State Government. The idea of the college was generated by the constant requests to metropolitan Rotary clubs for accommodation for high school students wanting to study special courses only provided at city based high schools. With the help of Federal, State and Local Governments, the corporate sector and guided by some Individual Rotary Clubs, this project is now a reality and has been operating successfully since 1991.

Over the past twenty five years some 1400 boarders have availed themselves of the accommodation and they have come from over 150 country towns.


The Rotary Residential College near the heart of Perth caters for two needs, it houses country students from all over Western Australia during the school term and sporting/holiday groups during the holiday period.

In the landscaped complex nestled among towering pines, there are 95 single, well appointed rooms with their own ensuite bathroom, and with linen provided and laundered.

Chefs expertly prepare excellent and nutritional meals.

The Managers live on the premises, which is protected by a state of the art surveillance and security system as well as a fire detection system.

Individuals and groups can be catered for in school holidays.

Country Students

The Rotary Residential College opens up a world of opportunities for students from country areas. The resident families provide stable supervision and care for the students who go to a variety of high schools around Perth.

Firm guidelines are set down to ensure that there is no disruption for individual students working hard for their special courses. Students benefit from the family atmosphere, but their own privacy in self contained rooms with bed, desk, storage, shower and toilet.
