Whoever thought writing a letter requesting leave to attend an important family affair is obviously mistaken. You don’t need to be a writer to come up with an organized and well-written request letter. All you need to do is address the letter to the right person, ensure that you explain why you’re filing for a leave, and sign it. Once approved, you’re free to go.

Our responsibilities as parents are endless. We have to prepare food for our kids, wash their clothes, teach them with their homework and projects, and of course, always being there for them when they need us. We should always render our moral support in all their undertakings especially in school. This is one of the reasons why you should learn how to write a letter requesting leave to attend a family function at school.

If it’s your first time to write this kind of letter, it’s advisable you make a draft first. Get a piece of paper and write your letter. Analyze if it sounds right. Watch out for typos, misspelled words and grammatical errors. If you have a computer, you can type your letter and let it check for spelling and grammar mistakes. Computers can easily detect them and they’ll correct your errors almost automatically.

Once your letter is free from any mistakes, it’s time to print it out. However, do a thorough review of your letter before pushing that print button. Better sure than sorry afterwards.

When writing that letter, bear in mind that the most important part is the body. This is where you explain honestly the reason behind your filing a leave. Let your boss know why you’re asking for a leave so he/she may understand your situation and grant your request. It’s important your boss knows why exactly you’re leaving work for a day or two. Once they know it’s because of family duties, for sure he/she won’t give you a hard time at all.
