Puberty ceremonies became common as of the eighties (of twentieth

century) to Iranian schools by the government of the Islamic Republic of

Iran. These ceremonies are held for the girls who reach the age of nine.

The puberty age for boys is fifteen; however, no such ceremonies are held

for them. They are obliged to practice their religious and theological tasks

upon the termination of such ceremonies. As viewed by Islam, these ages

indicate the commencement of pubescence in girls and boys.
