Question 1: Letter Writing

A. Write a letter to your father requesting payment of school fees before the end of the term’s first half and provide three reasons why he should do so.


Address: [Your Address] [City, State, Zip Code] [Date]

Dear Dad,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to bring to your attention an important matter regarding my education. As you know, our school principal has requested that all students pay their school fees before the end of the first half of the term. I kindly urge you to consider making this payment promptly, and here are three reasons why I believe it’s essential:

  1. Avoid Late Fees: Paying the school fees on time will help us avoid any late payment penalties or additional charges that may be incurred if the fees are paid after the deadline. By acting promptly, we can save money that could be used for other essential expenses.
  2. Ensure Continuous Education: Timely payment of school fees ensures uninterrupted access to education. It allows me to focus on my studies without worrying about the possibility of being sent home due to outstanding fees. This continuity is crucial for my academic progress and overall well-being.
  3. Support School Resources: By paying the fees on time, we contribute to the smooth functioning of the school and support the resources needed for quality education. Our timely payment helps the school manage its finances effectively and provides necessary facilities and services for students’ benefit.

I understand the financial commitment involved, and I appreciate all the sacrifices you make to support my education. Your cooperation in this matter would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to discuss them with me.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, Dad. I look forward to your positive response.

Warm regards,

[Your Name]

  2. Contribution to Inter-School Debate:
    • Example (For the Motion): As the main speaker in today’s debate on whether the girl-child should be educated, I firmly stand in support of the motion. Educating girls not only empowers them individually but also leads to societal progress. When girls are educated, they become capable of making informed decisions, contributing to the workforce, and advocating for their rights.
