Albert College celebrated the Class of 2021 in true COVID-19 fashion.

Last weekend local students enjoyed a ‘drive-thru’ celebration divided by time slots and physically distanced. Later that evening, 37 students representing 14 countries graduated from the comfort of their homes around the world with a virtual ceremony video conveying congratulatory messages, an award presentation and a celebration recognizing their many accomplishments during this difficult school year.

Head of School Mark Musca, teachers and staff members took turns in small groups, adhering to the physical distancing recommendations and gathering protocols from the province, to deliver awards, certificates and diplomas to Grade 6 and Grade 8 students on Friday, and to Grade 12 students on Saturday as they drove through the Albert College campus.

Virtual award ceremonies were also held for Grade 8 and Grade 12 students this weekend to virtually recognize their many accomplishments this year in Albert’s 5 ‘A’s – Academics, Arts, Athletics, Adventure, and Active Citizenship. A Grade 6 virtual celebration will take place later this week.

Top Convocation awards were presented to Grade 12 graduates from Belleville, Napanee and Prince Edward County.

Jasper Gilbert

Jasper Gilbert from Prince Edward County, was a co-recipient of the Marsh Award for finest representative male student.

Gilbert has attended Albert College for three years and was Head Prefect at Albert College this year. In addition to the Marsh Award, he also received the “Pete” Beach Award for conspicuous contribution and leadership in Albert College athletics; MP Neil Ellis Citizenship Award for strength of character and compassion to the service of others; and subject awards in Economics and Law. He graduated as an Albert College scholar achieving an academic average of 90 per cent or greater, and With Distinction demonstrating excellence in all 5 of Albert’s A’s. Next year, he plans to attend McGill University in Montreal to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Head of School, Mark Musca said the outstanding achievements of graduates, and the incredible perseverance of all Albert College students this year is something for which they should be proud.

“The unsettling feeling of not know what would happen next, the endless changes, and many challenges they faced were greeted by our graduates with courage and resilience. I am very proud of the young people who have graduated today and look forward to hearing of their future successes.”
