This is Arpit Sharma, a student of class 9th –A wishes you “Happy and Prosperous Diwali” as the festival of lights is fast approaching.

Also, it is my request to kindly give me three additional holidays after the registered Diwali holidays, due to a family marriage.

Sir, I request you to give me leave for three days i.e. on 15th, 16th 17th of November, 2018

I have never requested for any extra holiday in the previous years, but this time, we have a marriage in the family as well, which will happen immediately after the festival.

Considering the most sacred, important and joyful  festival, it is also the time for the family get together where my cousins from different cities are planning  for additional meet up.

Sir, being a hard-working student, my performance in the recently concluded exams have been satisfactory and I have been an obedient student who takes studies very seriously.

This is a moment, which I have been excitedly waiting for the past year.

I want to assure you that I am going to join school on 18th November with the same seriousness by making up for the lost studies in those 3 days.

I will take help from my friends and teachers regarding the studies.

I am pretty optimistic and hopeful, that you will grant me request.

I am also inviting you to attend the marriage ceremony of my brother as I am sending the invitation card.


I can think of taking leave only, if you permit me.

Thanking You,
