Sample 1 You Are A Teacher At A Secondary School (High School)
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to request your permission, along with a few students from my school, to arrange a museum trip.
I have been working as a teacher at a school for deaf and mute students. The school is known for its excellent services to these gifted learners. Our students are skilled at both academics and creating working models.
Despite their disabilities, our students have shown their mettle in many fields. This visit aims to enhance their knowledge and polish their creative skills. When students visit this art museum, they will learn about traditional and modern art and be entertained as well.
Would you be kind enough to supply the required information before the visit? Since the students are deaf and mute, do you have visual aids? Overhead projectors and transparencies can work effectively and maintain the students’ interest. Additionally, how much would it cost for 15 students? Do you arrange lunch, or should it be purchased individually? I am willing to pay the full amount if it includes lunch.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sample 2 You Are A Teacher At A Secondary School (High School)
Dear Museum Manager,
I am Dhanya Pulthookyil, and I work as an Information technology teacher at GMA higher secondary school. I am writing to inquire about the school student’s museum visit details.
As a part curriculum, we would like to show our tenth-grade students to Dubai Future Museum. The 10th-grade students are learning a lesson called Future in IT as part of their computer science subject. Teachers plan to show some live activities and models to better understand the particular topic and make studying more enjoyable. The total strength of our class is 32, 12 are boys, and 20 are girls, along with one teacher and co-teacher. We are flexible to visit between 10 am to 4 pm next Monday or Wednesday. We are planning to spend almost 3 hours in the museum.
We would like to know more details about the educational facilities you provide students. Is it possible for your team to take a 30-minute seminar to our students about the future of IT in daily life? If it’s possible, we would like to see a robotic show. It would be great if you could provide a discount on the student’s entry fee.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration. Please reply as soon as possible, as we need to arrange other things. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any other details, and I will be available on my phone at +971 00000000 and email at [email protected].
