My son,   ———————- ……..– who is in Form 1A, came

home yesterday with a black, eye and a tom shirt He told me he was beaten up tty several older students because he did not pay them what they demanded.

It seems that there is a gang of young thugs operating in the school. They have been extorting money from the younger students for some time now. My son is one of their recent victims. I spoke to a couple of my son’s classmates and they confirm my suspicion.

I am sure you are as concerned as I am about this kind of

Letter to parent confirming acceptance of child into school.

Please excuse my son, from performing overly vigorous physical activities. As you probably know, he broke his leg some months back and have just had the plaster-cast removed. Let him gradualty build up his strength and confidence before allowing him to indulge in any form of demanding physical activity.

Thankyou.

Yours sincerely,

Letter to Private School asking for Prospectus.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I should be most grateful if you would send me a pros­pectus of your school. My daughter will be going on to secondary school next term and would like to know what your school has to offer.

Thankyou.

Yours faitfully,

Letter to principal, requesting extra lessons.

Dear Sir,

I wonder if you could have extra lessons in mathematics for my son’s class, Form 1A. He is especially weak in this subject and he says it is the same for a number of his classmates.

I’m not asking to put undue load on your teachers. Perhaps you could hold these lessons outside normal school hours. I am prepared to pay for these extra lessons if necessary.

Yours faithfully,

To the British Council, asking for information about books.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I teach English to a group of children who are very keen to know more about life in England, especially in the rural areas. Books on this are not obtainable from the local shops. Perhaps you could suggest some reading material that are available in your library.

Thankyou.

 

Yours faithfully,

Letter to Chief Education Officer, requesting for transfer of child to another school.

Dear Sir,

My son, Ray, is current studying at St Paul’s Primary in Seremban. My work now requires me to be based in Port Dickson. Could you arrange for my son to be transferred to a school in Port Dickson so that I would not have to ferry him to and fro everyday. If is quite inconvenient really.

Thankyou.

 

Yours faithfully,

Letter to Education Foundation asking for information about scholarships/loans.

 

Dear Sir,

I recently acquired fairly good grades in my final examina­tions. I am keen to further my studies but am not financially equipped to.do so. I understand that your Foundation gives scholarships/loans for poorer students to pursue courses in local and foreign universities. Would you be kind enough to provide me with some information about this. I would like to apply for one of these scholarships/loans if I am eligible.

I enclose a copy of my examination results.

Yours faithfully,

Letter withdrawing child from private school.

Dear Sir,

It has been three months since my daughter Milly enrolled in your school. As we live quite a distance from the school, die is forced to stay with her aunt who lives near your school. It is obvious that Milly is unable to cope with the arrangements and we are bringing her back home.

I am grateful for all your concern and care. It is not the fault of your school or her aunt. It is just that she is too young to live away from home.

 

Yours faithfully,
