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.

A very successful morning for the parents of first-year students who are coming to study at Kovsies in 2011 was presented on our Main Campus in Bloemfontein at the end of 2010. It was the first time that a programme of this nature was presented and approximately 300 parents from across the country attended the event in a packed Scaena Theatre.  The parents were informed about all aspects of student life and were afforded the opportunity to talk to staff members and ask questions.
