Old Colony Montessori School recently hosted a gala to celebrate its 60th school year at Black Rock Country Club, attended by alumni and current and former parents and staff members.

Guests enjoyed a champagne wall, passed hors d’oeuvres, and beautiful floral arrangements from The Root, along with an auction.

Alumnus Conor Fortin and his friend Whit Hall entertained the crowd of 150 guests with live music while a slideshow of Old Colony Montessori School photos was on display.

Head of School and alumna Tracey Tuthill Buckeridge welcomed the guests, and Board of Trustees President Jay Moore provided an update on the health of the school and a glimpse into future plans.

Adding to the fun, alumnus parent Tony Viola got the crowd bidding wildly over concert tickets, golf packages, themed baskets, and classroom art projects.

Each guest left with a special native seedling packet created especially for the school by Blue Stem Natives.

“It was a wonderful evening commemorating the 60 years of positive impact that Old Colony Montessori School has had on its students, families, faculty, and community,” current parent and board member Christina Martini told the Hingham Anchor. “The evening also set the stage with exciting plans to evolve the school for future generations.”

The gala was a year in the making that involved many dedicated members of the Old Colony Montessori School community. “We met with alumni, poring over hundreds of photos, and solicited sponsors and auction items. The result was a fabulous and fun evening!” Buckeridge said. “It was a wonderful time of reuniting with old friends while raising money for a beloved Hingham institution.”
