Graduation Day 2022

Graduation Day 2022

On July 22nd we celebrated the achievement of our students with a Graduation Ceremony, held in the grounds of Boxley House. It was wonderful to have so many friends and family join us for this very special day. We were particularly pleased to be joined by alumni from the Classes of 2020 and 2021, who had been unable to experience a formal graduation ceremony due to Covid restrictions. A pleasure to see familiar faces back at the ESO.

Master of Osteopathy degrees were awarded by our Principal, Dr Kerstin Rolfe, and special guest speaker Dr Paula Fletcher; friends of the ESO will know that Paula has had a long association with the school, with her support continuing as Vice Patron. Our royal patron, HRH Princess Eugenie, also sent a personal message to graduates congratulating them on the determination, hard work and ambition shown throughout these difficult years. This year’s prizes were awarded by Ian Fraser, CEO, and Sarah-Jane Marshall, Head of Clinical Education; winners were Dan Le Winton (Top Clinic Student), Seema Bhandari (Best Overall Student) and Caroline Easter (Most Publishable Dissertation).

Many congratulations to all those receiving an award. We wish you every success in your career as an osteopath.
