"In South Africa the final year of high school is know as 'matric'. For students, the annual 'matric ball' carries huge significance and is a highly anticipated rite of passage. Despite South African students’ diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, for them and their families alike, the ball is a very significant event. Students will typically spend large amounts of time and money meticulously planning their outfits, having suits and dresses custom made, and will spend hours on the day itself in preparation for the evening."
