The Debs night is always a special occasion in a young person’s life.

The Debs night is always a special occasion in a young person’s life.

Secondary schools in Clonmel held their Debs in the past couple of weeks, with the CBS High School the first.

Students who sat their Leaving Cert exams at the school this year, as well as students who will sit the exam next year, having completed Transition Year, gathered at the school with their dates a fortnight ago.

The parade of style and glamour is always a great sight outside of the schools at this time of the year and this year has been no exception.

Waved off by their families and friends, the Debs were brought to Kilkenny in coaches, where they enjoyed a great night.

Following the celebration of the Leaving Cert results, the applications for places in Third Level education and the Debs, it’s back to reality for the rest of the school community, with classes resuming at the High School last week following the long summer break.

It was a big day for the new First Years especially when they entered the school for the first time last Tuesday week.

It was also a significant week for new principal Des Feeney, who has replaced Shay Bannon, who has retired.
