We know that children with epilepsy are often excluded from participating in activities and opportunities at school purely due to their diagnosis (and because teachers often haven’t had enough training in how best to support the children with epilepsy in their care).
So today, we’re tackling it in two terrific ways!
First of all, it’s Outdoor Classroom Day, and the sun is shining here on our campus in Lingfield. Students from our school are going to be taking their learning outdoors and we’re going with them! Keep an eye on our social media feeds (click here to follow us on Facebook, here for Twitter, and here for Instagram) for photos of the fun.
It’s really important for our students that they get to live life to the fullest, and this includes spending time out of the classroom. Particularly for children who are living with epilepsy and other associated neurological conditions, experiencing new environments is vital in learning new skills and (perhaps most importantly) having fun!
If the thought of spending time in the great outdoors appeals to you too, this week we’re launching your perfect fundraising challenge.
Walk for Young Epilepsy is a brand new event, which you can make into whatever you like. It’s up to you whether you make it a long walk or a short walk; whether you do it in the town or the country; if you do it in Spring or Summer; and whether you do it with a couple of chums or your whole community. Click here to find out more and get your fabulous fundraising pack.
Its only thanks to our fabulous fundraisers that we can continue to do our essential work in creating better futures for children with epilepsy and associated conditions. Please sign up today and help us to help more children stay safe, be included, and feel happy.
