The Plant Police

Elizabeth (who is 8) and her friend have started a committee at lunchtime called The Plant Police. The aim of this committee – from what I understand – is to protect the plants in the playground from rampaging children. I know what you’re thinking – she’s my mini-me. I almost feel a bit bad: what have I created!?

Yesterday Elizabeth typed up an application form for children who are interested in joining the committee. I thought it was pretty funny so decided to share it:


I have no idea where her question ideas came from. I had no part in the form other than being asked to print out several copies. Today she came home with two completed forms and apparently she needs more. In answer to the first question one child wrote:

Because I have nothing to do at lunchtime.

  1. I’d like to submit an application, because I also have nothing to do at lunch time and I love plants.

    1. Didn’t you get the memo, Ryan? You should be completing the new TPS cover sheets during your lunch time.

  2. If it were my daughter, I’d feel very proud. Does the job cover reasonable travel expenses? I live in Devon. If so I would like to apply please.

    1. I’m not sure about the travel expenses. I’ll have to get back to you on that one šŸ™‚

  3. This has got to be the best thing I have read in ages – they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, don’t they šŸ™‚

    1. Good! Glad you enjoyed it.

  4. I think that’s brilliant. I thought the thing about sharing fears was very mature. Hope her project goes well.

    1. I’m not sure what they intend to do but even if it’s just a lunchtime club that builds friendships and community then that’s a good thing.
