Hello and Welcome to KG 2 Swans!

My name is Emma Hudson and I am the class teacher of KG2 Swans along with my wonderful co-teacher, Ms Leah Acleo.

I am so excited to have your child in our class and I know that this is going to be a wonderful year! We are looking forward to a year full of fun, learning, exploring and adventures together!

A little bit about me: I am from Manchester, England but I have lived in the Middle East my whole life. First in Kuwait and now Qatar. I have been in Qatar for 22 years. This is my 11th year teaching and my 6th year here at EMS.

Ms Leah has been teaching for 2 Years back home in the Philippines and is new to our School this year.


Important Information.

Our school is a nut FREE school and we have a NO nut policy - No nuts, NO peanut butter sandwiches and NO food containing nuts please.

This is extremely important as we do have children with nut allergies. Any food found containing nuts will be sent home unconsumed.


Please take notes of the following things:

-Please be on time, class starts at 7:00 am and pick up is at 12:00 noon sharp. Please don't be late picking up your child, please think of how tired they must be by the afternoon. We don't want the children to hate school because they are tired of waiting for you to pick them up. So please do everything you can to make sure your child is picked up at 12:00 noon.

-Please send extra clothes labelled with your child's name. These are for any accidents that may happen and will be kept inside their bags in case they are needed throughout the year.

-Please label all items your child brings to school with their name.

-For your child's snack, please send healthy small snacks such as fresh fruits, sandwiches (Finger food). Please do not send in sweets, chips, fried foods such as nuggets and french fries, candy bars or sodas.

-Please send an art apron for the children to use during painting with long sleeves. You can send dad's old shirt to use during painting if you like.

-Please send enough water to last your child throughout the day.

-If your child needs to take any medication on a regular basis, please contact the school nurse. All medication must be given to the school nurse as soon as your child comes to school.

-Kindly be informed that children must not bring jewelry to school. We will not be responsible for any losses.

-Kindly be informed that all information and class photographs will be put up on to the Google Site.

-Kindly keep up to date with our KG2 Team’s Google page and our class KG2 Swans Google page for any important information and updates. I will not be sending out many emails, as all our information will be displayed on the Google site.

-Open lines of communication are extremely important and I can be contacted via my email address, you can call the school directly on the number above or you can make an appointment with me at any time.

-Our class schedule will be updated soon.

I hope you will be able to work with me hand in hand to make this academic year a success for your child, yourself and our EMS community. I do believe that I cannot achieve the highest expectations without your help and support. Thank you so much!


Lets let the fun begin!!!!!

Kindly send your child to school in their P.E uniform on Sundays and Tuesdays.

Thank you so much!
