INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS DAY RETURNS ON SATURDAY, 18 MAY 2024

We are delighted to again be lead sponsor for the renowned Student Intercollegiate Sports Day which will be held at the European School of Osteopathy, Boxley Campus on Saturday, 18 May. This year, we are teaming up with the Osteopathic Foundation to unite and show our ongoing support of this fantastic, collaborative student focused event. 

 

Students from osteopathic education institutions across the UK including ESO, BCOM, UCO and more students than ever before from Swansea University, will travel down to Kent for a day of relaxed competitive sports and socialising with their peers in the aim to inspire a community for the future osteopaths and to celebrate the profession in its entirety. 

 

While forging vital links across the student network, this daywill see colleges competing against one another and will see compete in a range of sports from football and volleyball to a tug-of-war. After the activities there will be a BBQ and party to finish of the days events.

Elliott Reid, Council Member, represented the iO at the event last year and said,

 

‘IT WAS AMAZING TO SEE THE UNITY BETWEEN THE OSTEOPATHIC SCHOOLS. IT WAS A GREAT DISPLAY OF CAMARADERIE AND THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE SCHOOLS BEING CELEBRATED. IT IS EXACTLY THE RIGHT THING FOR THE IO TO GET BEHIND.’

 

It is sure to be a brilliant event and a great way also to mark 150 years of the profession.  We will report back on all of the fun that unfolds after the event, but in the meantime we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone taking part, the very best of luck!
