The Secret Suggestion Box
You will require
- A suggestion box with a slot and a way of retrieving the suggestions
This is an activity can be used by leaving the post box, some paper and pens in a prominent place such as:
- The back of the church
- A church porch,
- A school reception
- The post office or other community shop
or it can be used during a single church service or youth / children's group session to post ideas.
The idea is to offer a way of encouraging children / young people to share comments, thoughts, suggestions and ideas anonymously. The box can be decorated to look like a suggestion box or a post box.
It is important to ensure that comments are looked at and addressed in appropriate ways. These can be fed back to the PCC and other stakeholders.
