SEAT at schools

There is no cure for a spinal cord injury, which is why Spinal Injuries Australia is so committed to prevention and raising awareness.

The Spinal Education Awareness Team (SEAT) program is an award-winning, highly respected injury prevention program which has been presented in Queensland schools since 1987. SEAT is accredited by Education Queensland and has reached more than 1.5 million children state-wide.

SEAT is proudly sponsored by: BHP Billiton Cannington, the Queensland Government and the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC).

Our volunteer presenters have all sustained spinal cord injuries and are passionate safety advocates. This year the team is aiming to visit 80,000 students at primary and secondary schools in metropolitan and regional areas.

SEAT presentations are suitable for all year levels from Prep through to Year 12. Each presentation is approximately 40 minutes in duration and can be tailored to suit your school’s requirements based on student numbers and number of sessions.

Thanks to the outstanding support of BHP Billiton Cannington and our other sponsors, SEAT continues to be offered at no cost!
