Purple Day is a great way to get your school or early learning centre involved in increasing awareness of epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Foundation invites your school to participate in Purple Day for Epilepsy. Purple Day is an easy way for your school community to show support for people living with epilepsy.

On any day during March, International Epilepsy Awareness Month, you and your school can join other students and teachers from around the world to go Purple and help raise awareness and vitally needed funds to support those living with epilepsy.
