Epilepsy Smart Schools

Progressive PR & Communications were appointed to help Epilepsy Australia encourage Australian schools to adopt the Epilepsy Smart School program, as less than five percent of the 9,500 schools across the nation are properly trained in coping with and understanding the needs of students with epilepsy.


Over a three-month period, PPR&C successfully generated relevant national media to raise awareness of the Epilepsy Smart Schools program and how to go about become an Epilepsy Smart School.

Campaign highlights in terms of coverage were interviews on ABC News 24 Breakfast, Sky News, the Daily Edition, and two weather crosses at a Perth Smart School for Channel Nine News Perth.
