Subject: Giving Permission to Use the Hall

Dear Kabir Jha,

I appreciate your email. The cultural program you and your friends have arranged for this exclusive occasion excites me. I am fully impressed.


Regarding your request to use the hall for a rehearsal during the lunch break, I admire your initiative in making the request. I'm happy to let you know that your fellow competitors are welcome to utilize the venue for their rehearsals after taking into account your request. They want to rehearse there for a few days, like you indicated. As long as it doesn't interfere with any existing events or lessons, that should be acceptable. Please make sure that the rehearsals are organized and that the hall is left clean and orderly at the end of each session.

I appreciate your passion and commitment to make this program a success. I wish you and your team the best of luck with the event overall and the rehearsals.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any more queries and need any help. I will certainly help you. We want to keep records in different sectors from students' side as we did earlier. Thank you.


Warm regards,

Anupam Pandit

Head Teacher
