Felicity Keats Morrison Achieves Excellence Award

for feature article dancing pencils.co.zaThe Correctional Services, Durban Management Area, honoured Felicity Keats Morrison by putting her forward as a Dancing Pencils’ nominee for their Excellence Awards (together with Mr Mbili, HOD of Medium B) and inviting her to be present at their annual Awards Presentations. This took place at the Coastlands Hotel in Umhlanga on Thursday 30th October.

Felicity’s invitation was for her part in motivating offenders of Medium B, Men’s Maximum Security, in 2013, to write short stories in English and isiZulu, as well as poetry, using their right brains. The books were launched at Exclusive Books, Pavilion, Westville, towards the end of 2013.  Felicity continued the project with giving the offenders tips on writing full length novels,  autobiographies or motivational books, in English or isiZulu, using right brain methods.

This has been a project taken deeply to heart as the offenders are still writing, and have selected a new committee for 2014. Transformation has taken place for them, and hence Mr Mbili, HOD of Medium B, went home after the Awards Evening with a lovely golden cup and a framed certificate for Excellence in the Dancing Pencils Project.

The vision of Correctional Services is: contributing to a just, peaceful and safer South Africa through effective and humane incarceration of inmates, rehabilitation and social reintegration of offenders.

The Awards evening was the 7th Corrections Excellence Awards hosted by the Durban Management Area of the National Department of Correctional Services in KZN. Officials who were awarded had excelled in their various components and duties.  They had gone the extra mile. They have dreamed to be different had overcome obstacles and reached their destinations.  They had conquered storms and “danced in the rain.”

They have made up their minds what they want to be and made this happen!

Congratulations to a happy and very efficient Correctional Services Department on a highly successful and fun evening!
