Next Chapter Green Ribbon campaign addresses mental health
Members of Next Chapter and UFS Student counselling are working together to address mental health issues.

Next Chapter, a student support group at the UFS presented the Green Ribbon campaign, pledging their support to students and providing them with assistance in coping with life events that stimulate stress and contribute negatively to their mental health. The team aims to break the stigma surrounding mental health care, and continually assist students with mental health-related issues that they struggle with daily.

The Green Ribbon represents mental health awareness, which is a pressing matter for students and is the type of support students need in a stressful university environment. The campaign focuses on teaching students how to cope with life events that stimulate stress, and contribute negatively to their mental health.
 
A discussion by Dr Ancel George: practising clinical psychologist and lecturer from the UFS Department of Psychology, and Dr Mellissa Barnaschone: Director of UFS Student Counselling, took place, where talks were prominent about creating an inclusive environment for UFS students.

The panel shared a few tips on how students should work towards managing stress, and motivated them for the main mid-year examinations.
 
The follow-up Exam Cram Workshop, presented by Nadia Cloete and Lize Wolmarans, that combined time and stress management, took place on 2 June 2018, and saw students receiving advice on how to approach various issues during the examination period.
 
Mental health awareness does not end with the campaign and Next Chapter’s slogan “Your story continues” encourages students to regularly wear and commemorate the green ribbon in support of continual mental healthcare.

Opera in Odeion
2005-03-11

Nols Nieman - Volksblad
DIE eerste opera op die Volksbladkunstefees, 'n konsert van klavierduette deur die vermaarde pianiste Albie van Schalkwyk en Anneke Lamont, drie konserte deur die Nasionale Jeugsimfonie-orkes en 'n uitvoering deur die bekende Rosamundestrykkwartet.

Dit is van die hoogtepunte wat vir liefhebbers van klassieke musiek op die Volksblad-kunstefees van 12 tot 17 Julie in Bloemfontein beplan word. Op 'n kunstefeesvergadering gister op die kampus van die Universiteit van die Vrystaat (UV), het mev. Doks Briers, hooforganiseerder, bekend gemaak dat die Nasionale Jeugsimfonie-orkes drie konserte gaan hou, waarvan twee volle simfoniekonserte gaan wees. Dié orkes hou tydens die fees 'n kamp op die Kovie-kampus.

Me. Hanna van Niekerk, sangdosent en konsertkoördineerder van die departement musiek aan die UV, het gesê die plan is om die sprokie-opera Hansie en Grietjie van Humperdinck in die Odeion op die kampus aan te bied. Die Skool vir Musiek in Potchefstroom van die Noordwes-universiteit onder leiding van Werner Nel voer dit uit.

Ook word 'n konsert deur die Rosamunde-strykkwartet beplan. Van Niekerk beskou Rosamunde as die beste strykkwartet in die land. Die vier vroue in die kwartet is Denise Sutton (viool), Suzanne Swanepoel-Martens (viool), Jeanne-Louise Moolman (altviool) en Marian Lewin (tjello)

Die beplande konsert van klavierduette deur Van Schalkwyk en Lamont behoort ook 'n vol saal te trek.
