Tips for writing the leave application due to sickness
- Use the correct format and address the right person. The application could be for the principal or to the class teacher. If the writer does not know who to write the application for, it would be wise to mention “to whom it may concern.”
- Make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes. If the writer is the student, it would be wise to proofread the letter or let an elder review it for any mistakes. An application letter, which is full of spelling mistakes and grammar errors, does not give a lasting impression.
- Read the letter several times before sending it. Mention the reason for sickness and it should be a valid reason. If necessary, and there is a requirement for a long leave, it would be better to attach the doctor’s report or note with the application letter.
