WEARING a formal white dress can be a rite of passage into adulthood and 27 Stanthorpe girls are about to frock-up to make their debut into society.

Tia-Louise Thompson is just one of the 27 girls who will take place in the St Joseph's Parish Debutante Ball.

"I have always wanted to do it, ever since I was young and first found out about it," Miss Thompson said.

"I can't wait to wear my dress and do the dance that we have been practicing."

Partner Mitchell Drake said it had been a fun experience for him so far.

"I think the boys are more like the accessories for the night," Mr Drake joked.

Committee member Angie Sims said the couples had been working hard.

"They started practicing on August 5 and still have a week to go," Mrs Sims said.

"On the night the girls will all be presented to Archbishop Emeritus John Bathersby."
