A QUEENSLAND primary school teacher's note welcoming her new students is going viral.

A Bowen State School teacher gave this note to each of her grade four students.

The note reads:

"Welcome to year 4.

"I'm so glad that you're here.

"Here is a little goodie bag to help you kick off the year.

"The eraser is to remind you that it is ok to make mistakes.

"We'll work and learn together, no matter what it takes.

"The stickers mean we'll stick together and work hard as a team.

"The puzzle shows how we'll fit together, working towards a common theme.

"The bookmark is to show you,

"You'll always have a place.

"If you ever feel a little lost,

"We'll help you find your place.

"The smarties are to remind you how smart I think you are.

"Work hard and do your best.

"Remember to aim far."

Bowen State School shared a picture of the note on their Facebook page.

It has been shared nearly 31,000 times and garnered 12,000 likes and 2000 comments.

The school's Facebook page has been inundated with praise for the teacher, who hasn't publicly been named.

"Dear Year 4 Teacher, What a brilliant way to welcome your new class. I wish that I had thought of doing that when I was teaching," Jenny Chapman wrote.

"Love your welcome pack!" said Sue McCarthy.

"I would like to congratulate your school on ..the wonderful welcoming letter you give to your students from the teacher/s," wrote Nat Johnston.

A Department of Education and Training spokesperson said the teacher did not write the note and is not passing it off as her own.

"She found it and thought it was nice."
