Write an application to the Principal asking him for a character certificate

Sir,

With due respect, this is to state that I have been a student of your school during 2006-07. I appeared at the Board Examination through your school. During the period I did well both in studies and sports. I had been a good student all along. Even I passed the Board Examination with good percentage of marks. I had also been active in extra-curricular activities.

Now I want to apply for the post of clerk-cum-typist at the collectorate. For this I need character certificate.

I, therefore, request you to kindly issue me the certificate so that I may be eligible for the post.

Thanking you,
