Please contact me if you are planning any activity or event during the tournament: firstname.lastname@example.org Now it's prison A former banker, winemaker and solicitor are among the latest Corrections staff. Seventeen new staff destined for employment in prisons around the country have graduated from their initial training course run from the Corrections Staff College at Rimutaka Prison. Corrections' chief executive, Ray Smith, and Corrections Minister Judith Collins were at the ceremony to welcome the new recruits. Mr Smith urged the group to remember that they were so much more than the people with the keys. You are our frontline. You're the person our prisoners see every day and you can make a very real difference. You will support and guide prisoners to receive an education, to undertake rehabilitation programmes and work activities; and to use their time in prison constructively. Make every contact count, and never stop learn- ing.'' Former solicitor David Tod from Otago was presented with the minister's excellence award by Mrs Collins. Mr Tod's course manager chose him for the award, saying he was a person who stood out from the crowd right from week one''. During the six-week course he had been highly motivated, and achieved consistently high results in both theoretical and practical assessments. He had also demonstrated a good knowledge of adult learning styles, which was valuable to his peers and would also be valuable when managing prisoners. The new recruits will work at Waikeria, Hawke's Bay, Manawatu, Christchurch and Invercargill Prisons and the Otago Corrections Facility. All will begin new careers as corrections officers, except one who will be an instructor for corrections inmate employment.
