MSK Kids


Primary school

Check out our fabulous new school resources which have been developed to help you and your primary school aged child get the most out of their time at school.

They’re also a great resource to share with everyone from your child’s soccer coach, gym teacher, brownie leader to their grandparents! In fact anyone your child spends time with who could benefit from understanding what it’s like to live with juvenile arthritis or another musculoskeletal condition.

These resources were developed with the generous support of Gandel Philanthropy and AbbVie.

We’ve now created an e-book version of our ‘Caring for a child with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions’ to make it easier for you. To download and share click here!


Secondary school

Do you have a secondary school aged child living with JIA or another musculoskeletal condition? Well, we’ve not forgotten about them! Print out this flyer for your child to give out to their teachers at school. Or you can contact Buffy, our MSK Kids program Coordinator, and she can pop them in the post to you. Just send her an email with your details to or give her a call on 03 8531 8039.

If you need more of any of these resources, or would like to provide feedback on how we could improve them, please contact Buffy. We’d love to hear from you!

Musculoskeletal Australia (or MSK) is the consumer organisation working with, and advocating on behalf of, people with arthritis, osteoporosis, back pain, gout and over 150 other musculoskeletal conditions.
