Be a law-abiding road-rule citizen these holidays
Follow the rules of the road to be safe.

Road crashes are a major cause of deaths globally, and particularly during the March-April holidays in South Africa. Therefore, abiding by the rules of the road serves to curb the high number of fatalities and is highly recommended. We urge all staff and students to take caution on the roads to ensure a safe return to the campuses next term.

According to Arrive Alive, some of the leading accident causes include drunk driving, failure to wear seatbelts, driver inexperience, driver fatigue, distracted driving and walking, as well as bravado. Be sure to avoid this at all cost.

Obeying the rules of the road saves lives. In 2016, Arrive Alive partnered with the UFS BSafe Campaign to educate students on becoming more responsible drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. For more road safety tips, visit the Arrive Alive website here.

Mawande Mateza, Human Movement Science student, has five simple tips on how to stay safe on the road these holidays – courtesy of Protection Services.

The debut concert of the new Free State Wind Ensemble will take place on 1 November at 19:30 in the Odeion. The Ensemble was put together by Wesley Wong and Lisa Solomon in an attempt to provide an opportunity to wind instrument players to play in different music genres. The music is exciting and very entertaining, including works such as Danse Celestiale by Robert W Smith and A Leroy Anderson Portrait.

The concert will also feature items by the NIHE Wind Ensemble from Kimberley (conductor: Mervyn Solomon) and a combined work with Voices Inc. student chamber choir.
