This campaign is a great opportunity to get children involved and learning about static electricity, seizures and to discuss the stigma associated with epilepsy and bullying. We have created a range of age-appropriate resources and a lesson plan on static electricity that can be adapted to suit the age of children from preschool to secondary school age.
To help us to continue to provide these sorts of resources, we would greatly appreciate if your school could use the opportunity to fundraise for our cause with a gold coin donation mufti day, purple day, or silly socks day. The kids love it and it’s a great opportunity to spread awareness for parents about November being Epilepsy Awareness Month so they can spark conversations about epilepsy at home with their children.
Are you confident your staff would know what to do if someone had a seizure at your school or centre? Speak to our team about arranging online training in our Epilepsy Essentials course.
We also offer free online training for primary school aged children in our Epilepsy Awareness courses.
Our courses for schools are designed as simple and fun activity-based programs to provide basic, practical information about the brain, seizures and epilepsy – and how to manage a seizure when it happens.

Become a Certified Seizure Smart School
Every school has a duty of care to provide a safe learning environment, and to ensure they meet the needs of every student.
For students living with epilepsy, the effects of seizures and medications may affect their learning experience adversely. Teachers can help manage and understand the needs of students in their care by developing their knowledge through epilepsy-specific training.
DON’T BE THE SCHOOL WITHOUT THE VITAL KNOWLEDGE AND SEIZURE FIRST AID.
Meet your duty of care to your students with trained and certified staff. Get started here.
Note: Seizure Smart Schools does not extend to pre-schools or childcare centres at this time.
