I am ABC, a student of the X A of your school. My Roll No. is 17, I am an orphan being supported by my uncle. He is a clerk in a private firm. He draws a insufficient salary of Rs. 5000/- per month. He has to support a family of six persons. He has two school going children. It is so kind of him to provide me food and clothes. I know that it is beyond his means to buy books and stationery for my new class.
I am very fond of reading. I always stand first in my annual examination. My class teacher speaks well of me. Moreover, I am captain of my school table tennis team. I have been a freeship -- holder throughout my school career. You have also been kind
Enough, Sir, to grant me full fee concession. But I regret to inform you that I have not been able to buy books this year. I have come to know through my class teacher that there is a provision in the school to help the deserving students out of the Students' Aid Fund. I would, therefore, like to request you to help me out of the Students' Aid Fund.
I shall be very much thankful to you if you do the needful.
Your most obedient pupil,ABC
