What’s trend­ing on so­cial me­dia this week

Life & Style Weekend - - TREND - with Alexia Pur­cell Alexia Pur­cell is News Re­gional Me­dia’s so­cial me­dia ed­i­tor.

AS KIDS across Aus­tralia started school last month, the way one teacher wel­comed her new stu­dents melted hearts na­tion­wide.

The Queens­land pri­mary school teacher gave this note to each of her Year 4 stu­dents.

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

And it went vi­ral. Last count, it had been shared 31,000 times and gar­nered 12,000 likes and 2000 com­ments.

The school's Face­book page was also in­un­dated with praise for the teacher, who wasn't pub­licly 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.

"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 rep­re­sen­ta­tive said the teacher did not write the note and was not pass­ing it off as her own.

"She found it and thought it was nice."
