Middleton Technology School in Rochdale becomes the 36th school to step up and engage Girls Out Loud. Our Big Sister programme launched in school in May following a Role Model Relay event where we introduced over 100 girls in Year 8 to 35 awesome female role models.
20 Little Sisters will now start a year-long journey with their Big Sister and participate in several group events starting with our Girl Code workshop in the new term.
