TEENAGE girls are being invited 'back to school' this weekend to try out activities like karate, rock climbing and bag printing.

A free event at Bishop Challoner school in Shadwell on Sunday (Match 9), organised by Tower Hamlets youth and community services, gives girls aged 11 to 19 a chance to get involved in activities, as part of International Women's Week.

Help and advice on issues affecting youngsters today is also 'on tap' from various agencies. Drug misuse advice is provided by Lifeline, while a stall run by Options and the Terence Higgins trust is offering advice on sexual health. Other organisations include Connexions and Met Police.
