About The Debuntante Ball
As always the question arises, so what is The debs ball you may ask?
The debs or grad is a formal ball for students in their final year of secondary school in Ireland, and is similar to the prom in North American schools, U.K. Schools and the School formal in Australia.
The "debs (ball)", is short for "débutantes' (ball)", this name was initially used for all girls' schools, co-educational schools, and some boys' schools; with "The Grad" (from graduation ball) often being used in all boys' schools.
It occurs at the end of the final year or (6th Year) of secondary school. Each secondary school hosts their own ball or graduation. With the vast majority of schools the debs is held in the autumn after the final year (which finishes after irish state exams known as the Leaving Cert in June each year);. In some schools, before the big ball, there is a smaller ball, known as a "pre-debs", "mini-debs" or "grads" is held; usually in January/February but sometimes as late as May.
The ball is usually, though not always, a formal dinner, followed by music and dancing. Traditionally there is a photographer, who will take individual Photos of each couple, and several throughout the night, of the dancing etc. It is quite common for the event to last all night, hence attendees do not to return home until the following morning, often going for breakfast together, or they will be provided with their breakfast from their hotel or venue.
Traditionally their is a committee comprising of students created in the school to organise the event . Normally, the person asking someone else will pay for both tickets. Students sometimes worry about being invited or finding a date but many attend with friends or in a group, not worrying about the formal dating aspect. Whether the female asks the male, or vice versa, this is irrelevant. Males are are usually wear dinner jackets ( Tuxedos), with a tie to match the females dress colour and usually wear a corsage (usually an orchid on a wrist strap)given to them by their date. It is customary for men to purchase a bouquet of flowers and / or a box of chocolates for the mother of their date.
