Faculty students secure first place in UP's 1nSync competition

Posted on February 22, 2024

Despite an absence of about 10 years from UP's annual 1nSync competition, our students, together with Health House (Faculty of Health Sciences) achieved the monumental feat of securing first place in this year's competition, the biggest event of the University of Pretoria (UP) for first-year students. 

The 1nSync competition takes place on the Hatfield campus. Different faculties, residences, day houses, and other structures participate in this event. It is a singing and dancing competition where each group chooses a theme which their performance will address. This year the Faculty of Veterinary Science students collaborated with Health House and chose the theme, One Health. 

This theme was inspired by the fact that both faculties are connected by this concept while our students have to receive a strong foundation of what One Health is all about. Participants are given a week to prepare and the external culture representatives, Naudine Bakkes from the Onderstepoort Paraveterinary and Veterinary Student Committee (OPVSC) and Esona Siphango from Health House made sure that our first-year nurses were thoroughly prepared for their performance which took place this past Saturday on 17 February 2024. 

The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (NAS) and EBIT faculties were second with the Faculty of Education in third place.
