Register your school to Make March Purple for epilepsy
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.
How can you show kids with epilepsy that you care and Make March Purple for epilepsy?
- Turn your school purple for a day, a week or a month
- Register your school today to receive your FREE schools kit. Including stickers, temporary tattoos, posters, balloons, and a storybook for your library about a possum with epilepsy.
