On the 28th of March 2017, Bupo Animal Health had the pleasure of handing over sponsored khaki shirts to Old Res. These shirts form a part of their strong tradition and are worn every Friday to show uniformity.
‘Old Res’ is the original building for student accommodation on the TUKS Onderstepoort campus, the only Veterinary school in South Africa. Old Res is filled with a rich history with last year being their 90th year of existence. They are one of the oldest as well as one of the last residences/houses left in South Africa that is still moulded and governed by tradition.
Old Res accommodates 42 male veterinary students within the building and new applicants have to apply and be voted in to be accepted as a member of the residence. Past members of the residence have gone on to become extremely prominent figures within the field of Veterinary and animal health.
This year the residence will give back to the community with two charity drives in which they will provide stationary and school supplies to under privileged children within the local townships near to their campus.
