Nut- Free School
Qatar Academy has a no-nut policy. This means that nuts or products containing nuts cannot be sent to school at anytime! This applies to birthday cakes and food brought from home for medical reasons. Several children attend QA who are highly allergic to all kinds of nuts. Any exposure can put them in danger of having a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction.
