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.

“Vandag is ek een, môre is ons twee, wanneer Pragtig haar kind vir my gee. Gelukkig sal niemand weet dat ek Repelsteeltjie heet.”

Who does not know the magical tale of Rumpelstiltskin by the Brothers Grimm. A beautiful girl is in trouble and only a gnome can help. She makes a hasty promise, but it is far too terrible to keep. Let us take you to world where gnomes can spin gold out of mere straw, where the reigning prince genuinely care more about people and less about money and where truth prevails over falsehood and chaos.

The Department of Drama and Theatre Arts dusted off this fairytale and presents a new version which promises to entertain the whole family. Bring the children to enjoy a fun morning where Grandpa may also roar with laughter.

Tickets are available at Computicket. For more information and block reservations contact Thys Heydenrych at 0722353191 or Marijda Kamper at 051 401 2160.
