A grade 4 teacher at Bowen State School in Queensland has given her new students a warm welcome to her class for 2017.

Bowen State School posted the note on their FB page:

With over 30 thousand shares and 2 thousand comments the post has quickly gone viral with praise for the unnamed teacher.

Absolutely amazing! To make every child feel secure and welcome is the most important part of schooling. I will use this with my class. The children are very lucky to be a part of your wonderful school. Xx” Gaynor Goodwin FB

“Every child needs a teacher like this. I wish every child could receive this, no matter what Grade, to give them hope and encouragement.” Beverly Casson FB

Now that’s the type of teacher every child should have.” Monique Gradjean FB

I think it’s a lovely way to welcome the kids to the new class and new year and I am sure it made them all feel cared for.

Has your child ever received a note from their teacher?

  • I love teachers who have such passion and commitment to their jobs and their students. No one doubts teaching is such a hard job – but bless all the teachers out there who go above and beyond to assist their students. These teachers impact kids and their parents for years after they are no longer in their class.


  • Good motivation… motivations can work better than instructors


  • That is just sensational. Well said.


  • I love this so much! Kids need this kind of encouragement & to feel welcome & special. Well done teacher!!


  • I saw this letter in Facebook. It’s really amazing. I love it!!


  • What a fantastic teacher. I’m so impressed


  • Well…this teacher gets an A+ for being a wonderful teacher – way to go for inspiring and reassuring children.

    • Hopefully other teachers will take this on board and have a similar letter. Great relationship building between teacher, children and parents.


  • This is wonderful and shows that (most) teachers really care about making a difference.


  • This teacher is so amazing! Go girl!
