On 16 and 17 February 2023 the new 2nd year BVSc and 1st year BVetNurs students got a PAWsome welcome at the Faculty of Veterinary Science's Onderstepoort campus.

“PAWS”, which stands for Professional Attributes Workshop, is a 2-day in-contact workshop which sees the students take part in various small group, team-building exercises. One of the main objectives of PAWS is to help students get to know each other as well as some of the older students who facilitate the activities mainly from the Faculty’s House Committee (HC) and the Onderstepoort Paraveterinary and Veterinary Student Committee (OPVSC).

In this day and age, the non-clinical competencies are increasingly important skills for students to master and during PAWS they learn everyday leadership, professionalism, communication and teamwork.
