Fundraise at School

or Early Learning Centre

An estimated 12,000 children in Queensland are currently living with epilepsy. For kids with epilepsy getting through the school day can be challenging. Not only can seizures impact on a child’s education but the side effects of anti-seizure medication can cause fatigue and changes in behaviour.

1 in every 200 Australian school children are living with epilepsy – so it is likely you already know a student with the condition.

What can your school do to make an impact?

Host a morning tea, free dress day, crazy hair competition, tuckshop treat day, guessing competition, colouring contest, silly socks day…  the options are endless!
