Purple teaches kids about epilepsy

CHILDREN at Village Kids Children's Centre Ipswich wore purple and learnt about epileptic seizures as part of national Purple Day for Epilepsy activities.

Centre director Elizabeth Baguley said about 50 children spent the day making purple artworks and revising how to respond to suspected seizures.

"We have children who attend the centre who have epilepsy, so it's always been a really important issue to us," Ms Baguley said.

Ms Baguley said the group raised about $200 for Epilepsy Queensland through selling badges and other items.
