THE Department of Correctional Service promoted living a healthy lifestyle at a wellness day at Murray Park Stadium on Tuesday.

Staff from Bongweni C Max Prison, Kokstad Medium Prison, Matatiele Prison, Umzimkhulu Prison and Port Shepstone Prison took part.

They participated in sack races, soccer, netball, and volleyball and egg race and banks and government departments provided their services at the event.

Co-ordinator of development and care at the Department of Correctional Services in the Kokstad Management Area, Ntombizodwa Sibutha, said the purpose of the event was to promote a healthy standard of living among employees and “refresh them”.

“The department does not want to keep employees in the office all the time. Sometimes they need to refresh their minds by playing games. We hosted these games for workers to network with one another,” said Sibutha.
