You are currently taking a course at a college, but you will need to have a week off during this course. Write a letter to the college Principal. In the letter:
- give details of your course
- explain why you need a week off
- say what you want the Principal to do
I hereby write to apply for a week off from school in order to attend a very crucial and unavoidable function at home.
I am Ajayi Kehinde, a postgraduate student of Computer Engineering. My program actually remains two months for completion, which requires my being fully on the school premises till the end of the program because of the practical and other important course attachments.
However, with a sorrowful heart, I wish to bring to your notice that I just lost my father this morning, and my religion expects a deceased person to be buried within 48 hours of the death. I wish to let you know that I am the first child of the family, which means that I need to be physically present at the burial rite.
Because of the above, I will be grateful if the school authority could exempt me from school for a week in order to attend the program. In addition to that, I will appreciate it if the school can grant me grace for a make-up class for any missed lectures while I am away from school.
Thanks in advance for your kind approval.
