Apologies to Principal for mistake & breaking rules (letter samples)

Learn, how to write a good letter to the Principal for apology !

Writing a letter to Principal for mistake / misbehavior. Such incidents often happen to us in school, when we or our classmates are caught by teachers misbehaving or wrong doing in class. They are then punished according to school rules or asked to 'write an application for justification or forgiveness'.

It is very important for a student to follow the rules of the school and not to break them intentionally. It may result in suspension from the school. It also creates a bad image of the student.

Here are sample of two letters that you can use according to your own situation:

  1. Apology to Principal for breaking rules.
  2. Letter for apologies for mistake/misbehave.
