PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Unwell teens get $10k boost from Papanui High RONALD McDonald House’s teenage room has received a $10,000 boost from Papanui High School. The room is for children aged 10 and over and currently has an Xbox, foosball table, space invader machines, couches and bean bags. Ronald McDonald House South Island director of house operations Zucchi Leonard said the organisation was thrilled to have the school as a sponsor. “We want the students to take ownership of the room and redesign it. At the moment, it is a teenagers room designed by adults.” The room allows the teenagers to have their own space, away from their parents and away from the younger children. Deputy principal Tim Kirby said the money was raised in three ways. Year 9 and 10 students participated in a work day afternoon, 23 students from the special learning needs department ran a car wash for staff and the whole school raised money through a number of mufti-days. “The school has now committed to being an annual sponsor of the room beginning this year, which is an exciting and an extremely worthwhile cause,” said Mr Kirby. The students will now think about the room’s layout. • By Sophie Cornish RESULTS FROM public submissions on changes to Cranford St and surrounding areas show residents may be divided on how they would like traffic managed in the area. More than 400 submissions were received on proposed options for dealing with the increased traffic to the Cranford St area, once the Christchurch Northern Corridor opens in 2020. Fifty-one per cent of people would support Madras and Barbadoes Sts being split into three sections. About two-thirds of submissions support the options of clearways on Cranford St between Innes Rd and Berwick St. A similar amount support upgrading the intersections at Forfar and Warrington Sts and Barbadoes and Warrington Sts. Last month, a 500-signature petition was presented to the Papanui-Innes Community Board about the changes. •Turn to page 7 Worried about your hearing?
