Sub: Requesting to open a canteen on the school campus

Respected Sir,

I, Srijita Dhar, am a student of class X, of your reputed institution. I humbly request you to grant permission for opening a canteen inside the school campus. I stay quite far from our school and I have to travel two hours every day to come to school. Both my parents are doctors and they do not have a routine. They are asked to stay in hospital even in the odd hours. Hence, carrying food from home becomes a hassle for me. Most of the days I only eat biscuits and the foods my friends share with me.

Having a canteen within the campus would be really helpful. It would also help other students who face the same kind of problems as me. We would be able to have fresh food and will not have to remain famished. I hope you understand my genuine concern and take the necessary steps at the earliest. I will be highly obliged for your cooperation in this matter. 

Yours sincerely,
Srijita Dhar ( Class X, C)

Respected Madam,

I, Jitendra Yadav, am a student of class VIII, of section D of your renowned institution.  I am writing this letter to kindly request you to open a canteen on the school campus. I am a member of the football association of our school. I have to practice regularly on the school campus and that often requires me to stay after the classes. Sometimes I also have to come early in the morning for practice before any tournament.

The practice period after school makes me quite exhausted and I feel quite hungry. It is not possible always to carry two or three tiffin boxes for the day. Hence a canteen inside the campus will be really helpful for us. Other members of the association will also get the benefit from it. I hope you keep our request as it is a genuine cause. I will be highly obliged if you take the situation into consideration. 

Yours sincerely,
Jitendra Yadav (Class VIII, D)

Respected Madam,

I, Smriti Jha, am a student of class VI, of your reputed institution. I humbly request you to open a school canteen inside the campus. Most of the students carry their own food at school. However, due to this scorching heat of summer, our food is getting stale very frequently. We are unable to eat our tiffin during recess as the food becomes totally inedible. We have to remain starved on these days. In such a scenario, a canteen on the school campus will really aid us.

We will have access to fresh food all day long and we do not have to spend a day without food. I hope you would cooperate with us in this grave situation and do the needful as early as possible. I will be highly obliged for your consideration. I have also attached a letter with the signatures of the student who are in favour of a school canteen. 

Yours faithfully,
Smriti Jha (Class VI, D)

Respected Sir,

I, Rahul Bose, am a student of class XI, humanities section of your reputed institution. I am writing this letter to humbly request you to open a canteen inside the school campus. I am from a different city and have taken admission for my higher secondary in our esteemed school. I am currently staying in a boys hostel which is specially built for school students. In this boarding hostel, we are only provided breakfast and dinner. The authority does not provide us lunch and I have to buy food from the outside with an extra charge for my lunch.

There have been days when I had to skip my lunch because of the high expense. Hence, a food canteen inside the school campus will be really beneficial. I would be able to buy fresh food at an affordable price and satiate my hunger. As food is the source of energy it will help me to focus more on the study as well. I hope you would understand legitimate demand and take the necessary steps regarding this. I will be highly obliged for your cooperation. 

Yours obediently,
Rahul Bose
(Class XI, Humanities Section)
