Principal’s Welcome

John Mooney – Principal of Emerson School

Welcome To Emerson School

I have been working in the area of Specialist Education since 1974.

Students and parents need quality choices and options when choosing the right school for a student who has additional learning needs. I am very proud of having been a part of the Emerson School community since 1998.

Emerson entered a new phase of its development with a second campus housing our Middle School students opened in early 2012. This campus and its facilities enable exciting new learning opportunities for all of our students.

I firmly believe that Emerson is a school that provides a well-rounded education for students from all backgrounds. All of the staff at Emerson are friends, counsellors and role models to students. This responsibility drives and inspires us to assist our students to become happy, engaged and productive members of their communities.

A Word From Our Parents


Thank you for the amazing care, education and life skills you have provided Liam. The moment we walked through the doors in 2009, I knew we were ‘home’ and had found the place for Liam to grow. Thank you for taking my little bud and helping him grow and blossom, ready to be a working man next year.
