County Students honored at Albert College Convocation

Fraser Moodey, of Carrying Place, and Brooke Busscher, of Bloomfield

Thirty-three students representing 12 countries graduated from Albert College Saturday, June
16, including two students from Prince Edward County.

Fraser Moodey, of Carrying Place, and Brooke Busscher, of Bloomfield joined families of graduates from the local area and from around the world including Barbados, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and Hong Kong.

Moodey and Busscher have attended Albert College in Belleville for 14 years and nine years respectively. As a Prefect this year, Fraser was recognized as an exemplary role model in one of the highest leadership roles at the school. Brooke has embraced many opportunities at
Albert College as a three-day boarding student and has taken a keen interest in the arts playing in
the school band and as a member of the makeup crew for four drama productions.

“Being able to attend Albert College has allowed me to follow in my father’s footsteps (Adam Busscher ’90) and my uncle’s footsteps (Mark Busscher ’88),” she said. “Living in residence three-days a week has allowed me to attend late night band practices, get extra help from my teachers in study hall and focus on my studies. I have enjoyed a home away from home with my second family here at Albert.”

She received the Day House Award for the finest contribution to school life, as well as the Marjorie Prior Award for conspicuous contribution to the life of the school. She also received the Albert College Guild Scholarship for showing significant personal growth and an increased understanding of meaning of responsibility in and to the school. She graduated with Distinction as an Ontario Scholar and an Albert College Scholar achieving an 85% average or higher
and excelling in Albert College’s 5 ‘A’s (Academics, Arts, Athletics, Active Citizenship and
Adventure). Brooke plans to attend the Canadian Beauty College in the fall pursuing a makeup artist diploma.

A top Albert College award, the Marsh Award, was presented to Fraser Moodey for character,
scholarship, leadership and recreation. Fraser also received the Governor General’s Academic Medal for achieving the highest academic average in Grades 11 and 12, as well as the MP Neil Ellis Citizenship Award.

Moodey has been involved in all five of Albert College’s ‘A’s (Academics, Arts, Athletics, Active Citizenship and Adventure) and graduated as an Ontario Scholar and Albert College Scholar with Distinction.

Head of School, Keith Stansfield said, “Fraser has been the backbone of the Wind Ensemble and Jazz band. He is a leader in our Adventure program and is currently working towards his Gold Level in the Duke of Edinburgh Program. Academically, he has consistently been on the honour roll, and has received Academic accolades each year for maintaining an average of over 90 per cent. I can’t say enough about his many achievements.”

Moodey is pursuing a degree from Queen’s University in the fall majoring in Computing. He represented the graduating class as Valedictorian, sharing messages of inspiration.

“We entered those large Albert College doors at different points, but we are leaving them for the last time today, together. As we eagerly await what the future holds, find your passion and follow your dreams.”

One hundred per cent of the graduating class will be pursuing post-secondary studies next year.
Brooke and Fraser, along with 79 per cent of the graduating class, received Ontario Scholar status having achieved an average of 80 per cent or higher in six Grade 12 subjects. A total of 14 graduates were also Albert College Scholars, having achieved an average of 90 per cent or higher in six Grade 12 subjects. In addition, 12 students graduated with Distinction, having achieved an average of 85 per cent or more and excelling in Albert College’s 5 ‘A’s (Academics, Athletics, Arts, Active Citizenship and Adventure).

The most popular Canadian university destinations include Ryerson University, University of Toronto, Queen’s University, McMaster University and the University of British Columbia. Some graduates will also attend international post-secondary schools in Mexico, Barbados and the Netherlands.

Albert College is Canada’s oldest co-educational boarding and day school. Providing an enriched
curriculum from pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, Albert College is a home away from home to students from Canada and more than 20 nations.
