Hello and welcome to Awfaz Global School (AGS). My name is Karen Brierly and I am the head of Early Years at Duhail. I have worked in Early Years and Foundation Stage education for over 10 years, in both the UK and Qatar. I believe that early experiences influence a child throughout life and a child-centred approach is where our children can develop their passion for learning and feel nurtured and secure.

I want to give our children the confidence to challenge, explore and question as they learn and discover. I feel that this is fundamental in helping them to develop their confidence and overall wellbeing.

At AGS, we strive to create a safe, engaging and happy environment where our children can develop and grow. Our dedicated and enthusiastic teaching staff are passionate about giving our young learners the best experiences. The whole team work together to bring learning ‘alive’ and extend pupils’ experiences so that they are well prepared for the next steps in their education.

We believe a happy child will be a successful child hence, we work to ensure every child enjoys school and achieves success. We do this by providing the best teaching and learning experiences that we can through an exciting and engaging curriculum.

I am excited about the future and I hope to continually evaluate our practices and ensure that we are offering our children an excellent foundation stage education.

Warm regards,

Ms Karen Brierly
