I want to draw your kind attention to one shortcoming in your otherwise good institution. I happened to go to one of the toilets for students after a school function. I attended this function as the guardian of my younger brother. I was shocked to see the condition of the toilets. There was a foul stench all around. Yellow patches caused by urine were visible everywhere. There was no proper flushing and cleaning of the pots of the toilets. Some of them seemed to be blocked and caused overflow of filthy water. The walls bore ugly graffiti.
Since toilet is 6m essential facility, proper cleanliness and maintenance is a must. I do hope you will pay attention to this most essential problem.
Thank you

Madam,
During a recent meeting of PTA, I happened to visit your school .as the guardian of my younger sister. I was deeply impressed by the standard of cleanliness and discipline in your school. One thing, however, irked me most. It is the lack of proper arrangement of clean drinking water in the school. Although summer has not yet begun, I found long queues of thirsty students in hunt of the water coolers on the ground floor. I saw some students quenching their thirst from water taps on the first and second floors.
Supply of clean, germ-free water is an essential part of the facilities the school should offer. I suggest that immediate steps should be taken to instal boosters to provide a running supply of water to the water coolers on the first and second floors.
I hope you will take urgent steps in this regard.

Respected Sir,
With due regards I would like to bring to your kind notice towards our difficulties and feelings. We all know that we have no playground in our school, but we have a bunch of students who are very good hockey players. Due to non-availability of playground all the players cannot practise as a team. The interzonal school tournaments are to commence within a fortnight. As the captain of our school hockey team, I feel morally bound that our players have proper co-ordination and play as a team and not as a bunch of players grouped together.
For this purpose, we need playground facilities. I, therefore, earnestly request you to arrange playground facilities from a neighbouring school in the morning/evening for an hour or two so that we may practise together under the guidance of our coach.
I hope to have a favourable consideration.
Yours obediently
Ankit Patel

Sir,
With due respect, I would like to submit the following facts for your kind consideration. As you know, the summer is in full swing. The temperature has already crossed 40°C. The afternoons are very hot. As the classes of the boys are held in the second shift, we have to bear the brunt of the heat. To add to our plight, the electricity department resorts to frequent and unannounced power-cuts. This irregular supply of electricity hinders our studies as it affects our concentration and efficiency. You know that our NDA exams are to be held in June. We are preparing hard for the forthcoming examinations.
In the welfare of all the students, I request you to arrange for a generator of high power in the school so as to avoid the inconvenience caused to the learners by irregular supply of electricity. I am optimistic that you would take necessary steps to provide generator facility to all of us at your earliest convenience.
Thank you

Sir,
During my visit to your school in connection with P.T.A. meeting, I happened to go to the library. I would like to draw your attention to the malfunctioning of the library. I sincerely feel that it can prove more useful to the students if a few steps are taken to tone it up.
I was shocked at the disorderliness in the library. Books were lying in heaps and were not restored to the proper shelves. No wonder the book which the library has is reported to be non-available by the library staff. The lack of cooperation from the library staff makes the situation worse. You may take steps to make them alert and willing workers. The shortage/non-availability of books, if any, may be made up by buying more copies of the volumes more in demand. The old and broken tables and chairs may be got repaired if not replaced.
I hope that during our next meeting we shall find the library cosy, spick and span.
Yours faithfully

Madam,
Being the guardian of a student of your school, I would like to register my complaint against insufficient number 6f reference books in the school library. During one of my visits 1 came to know that CBSE has changed the style of questions in English. It has supplied a book of questions to every school. I have not been able to procure one from the market. My sister Nita could not get one from the library. On enquiring from the librarian, she came to know that the copies of the book containing the Question Bank in English are insufficient. It is certainly a hurdle as lack of proper books hinders learning activity.
You know the importance of books in this competitive age. This particular book has become indispensable for the students as it informs them about the style and types of questions and thus guides them in preparation and helps them in self evaluation.
I, therefore, request you to take necessary steps in order to increase the number of textbooks as well as reference books in such a manner that they would meet the demands of the students.
I do hope you’ll consider my request.
Yours faithfully

I would like to draw your kind attention towards the need of bringing improvement in our school canteen. Our school canteen is just an apology for a canteen. It is housed in an old dingy, ill ventilated room. Though the school has more than 2500 students, but the canteen has only 25 chairs and most of them are broken. There is a huge rush during the recess. Students who go there in their vacant periods find it in bad shape. The contractor pays no attention to the quality of the eatables served here, though the prices are exorbitant. No effort is made to keep the place neat and clean.
I request you to kindly pay a surprise visit to the canteen and make an on the spot appraisal. In case you are convinced of the genuineness of our observation, please ask the canteen committee to take immediate steps to improve the situation.

It is a matter of pride for all of us that our school ranks very high in Delhi both in academie and co-curricular fields. Every year the school students figure among the top ten in various board results and win distinction for school in sports, science exhibitions and republic day participations. It is all due to your patronage, guidance and the hard labour and keen interest evinced by the staff and students.
However, I would like to mention one thing that leaves a bad impression on the mind of the visitors. The school premises needs a face-lift. I am offering some concrete suggestions in this regard.
The school lawn is in wilderness. The flower beds are neglected and the grass is unmown. Either the school gardener is unmindful of his duty or he has been assigned some other job. The school library must be spruced up as its ugly looks are an eyesore. Its bare inner walls can be made more beautiful by displaying pictures of renowned scholars and writers. Some quotable quotes here and there can add to the beauty.
I earnestly hope you will give due consideration to my suggestions.

Sir,
As a former student of the school, I request you to introduce Biology as one of the subjects in our school in senior secondary classes. Our school has excellent facilities for physics and chemistry, but there is no provision for the learning of Biology.
Biology is a very important subject for the students who have to seek admission in MBBS course. Since we do not have this particular subject in the senior secondary classes, our students will always have a major drawback if they want to compete for the Entrance Test leading to admission in MBBS course. Private coaching is no substitute for regular
classes. In the present competition oriented times, where professionalism is the order of the day, it becomes imperative to have thorough knowledge in the field where one’s interest lies.
If the subject of Biology is introduced in our school, it will prevent unnecessary inconvenience to students who have to migrate to other schools after passing the tenth standard for want of their desired subject.
I am optimistic to hear a positive response in this matter from you at the earliest.

Sir,
As the head boy of school, I would like to put before you a genuine need of the students. Our school is one of the leading schools in the state and famous for its academic excellence. We students, however, feel handicapped in one respect only. Our school is lacking in facility of computer education.
The need of computer education is felt nowadays by everyone. We know that the modern age is moving fast. The frontiers of knowledge are spreading fast and unfolding something new every moment. To cope with the inflow of scientific and technical data, knowledge of computers is a must. The computers play a vital role in banks, business houses, railways, airlines, science laboratories and research centres. Without effective training in computer learning, the students will not be equipped to cope with the problems they are likely to face in the forthcoming career. If we have to compete with other countries in the field of science and technology, the knowledge-of computers must be imparted at an early age.
Keeping in view the facts stated above, I request you to arrange computer learning facility in our school at the earliest.
Hope to have a favourable consideration.

Sub: Reduction in Number of Paragraphs for Reading Skills
Sir,
I agree with the maxim that exams are the test of one’s knowledge, skill and ability. But I am not in favour of the number of paragraphs set for reading comprehension and note¬making. These passages tend to be tedious and boring. The students have to spend more time to read, analyse and understand them and answer the questions. The result is that students fail to complete the paper within the prescribed time limit. Thus these passages harass the students. They do not relish writing answers to them.
In view of the poor performance of the students in reading skills, I request you, sir, to consider the case of reducing the number of paragraphs for reading skills. I am confident that two passages of shorter lengths will unable students to give better performance. Hope to have a favourable consideration.

Sub: Curriculum of SUPW
Sir,
The curriculum of SUPW (Socially Useful Productive Work) is quite vast and contains many interesting and useful activities. The choice of subjects/projects has been left to the institutions. This has led to a very disturbing state. Many schools have no provision or facilities for the hobbies/subjects introduced for the senior secondary classes. There is no field work or practical participation of students. These periods are reduced to one-way lectures only. The students are so disillusioned that they call SUPW as ‘some useful periods wasted’. It will be better to prescribe a limited number of crafts/hobbies suiting the local conditions and availability of raw material. Please try to make the curriculum of SUPW relevant and effective for real life.

I, therefore, request you to kindly open a career counselling centre in your school to help your students make the correct choice according to their aptitudes/talents as well as future job prospects. Expert guidance in the field will prove invaluable to the young students.
I hope you will consider my request favourably.
With regards and best wishes.
Yours faithfully

Question 26:

EXTRA CLASSES IN MATHS

You are Rajat/Rajani Walia, Head Boy/Girl of your school. Request your Principal in writing to arrange extra classes in Maths for the students of XI and XII classes. Give detailed reasons to support your demand.

XYZ City
Sub: Extra Classes in Maths
Sir,
The other day we were admonished about poor performance in Maths in the Pre-Board Examination. We have tried to search our souls, rack our brains and find out the fault. The reason is quite obvions. Our Maths lecturer retired in August and stop-gap arrangements were made for three months by appointing temporary hands. Only last month we were
able to get the guidance from an expert and competent teacher like Mr. B.M. Garg. However, a lot of our course remains uncovered and proper justice cannot be done to it in the regular periods only. . .
Moreover, we have to make up our deficiency. Drill, revision and classroom tests also require certain periods. In view of the paucity of time available to us between now and the commencement of board examination, it is requested that some extra classes before/after school hours be arranged in Maths for XI and XII classes.
I hope that the request of the students will be acceded to without any delay.
Yours obediently
Rajani Walia
Head Girl
