Grade 5 students from Pope John Paul received a special gift from St Thomas Aquinas High School's Grade 10 Religion class.
The two classes worked closely earlier this year on an inspirational poster and picture book project to address issues and concerns of the Grade 5 students.
Yesterday the Grade 5 students got to see the product of that partnership, when the Grade 10 students presented them with 10 new books for their classroom.
Grade 5 Student Aspen Holmstrom shared her reaction.
"Wow! They did really good, printing them out, putting pictures in it, putting words in it and putting colourful pages in it," she said.
The Grade 10 students did an anonymous survey to collect data and then wrote the books - sharing positive ways to approach common and complex issues.
Grade 5 student Alexis Wolke talk about the project.
"We kind of helped them out. Told them a bit about us, and I guess they used some of that and put it in their books. They published it, and now it's perfect," she said.
The books address topics of anxiety, making friends, rumours, bullying and parents fighting.
In total, the Grade 5 class will receive a series of 10 books.
