As part of the Grade 5 science curriculum about the human body, a representative from Epilepsy Ontario explained to students that a common concern for people with epilepsy is the social stigma that is associated with seizures.
The students of Mrs. Meikle's Grade 5 homeroom organized a campaign that extended their classroom learning into the social culture of the school, breaking down barriers and increasing awareness and acceptance.
Students made posters, submitted announcements and rallied together to raise awareness for epilepsy.
