The Head Teacher

Dear Sir,

We would like to inform you that we, students of class IX are organizing an inter-house volleyball tournament in our school.


The match will be played among the four houses in the school. It will start after school on Friday. We have requested Mr. Chulgen Chaudhary, our sports teacher to help us conduct the match. Mr. Chaudhary is planning to ask three of our senior students to help him. We plan to do the quarter final and semi final on Monday as it is a public holiday. The final will take place next Friday.


We humbly request you to manage all required sporting goods for the tournaments. We wonder if you could permit us to be using the school playground and the ball as well as the net under the supervision of our sports teacher.


We would like to ask you to be the chief guest at the programme and encourage the students for better play in a sporting manner.

Thanking you,

Students of class IX
