Students from the Naracoorte High School's Integrated Learning Program will show the results of the work they have been doing this semester in an exhibition this week.

The students have put together the exhibition, which will be held at the school library from 5.30pm on Tuesday, June 15, to showcase their work.

Teacher Tammy Schinckel said the exhibition would be made up of work completed by the four year 11 integrated learning classes - Reno rescue, creative arts, photography and life skills.

"Reno rescue where students go up to men's shed and work with them as mentors. They go up there twice a week and then they do a journal and theory the other day," Mrs Schnickel said.

"Life skills is about preparing them for the world of work, so writing resumes and volunteering, but we also get a lot of guest speakers in."

There will also be an exhibition within and exhibition next Tuesday, with students showcasing a range of fantastic works of art, as well as magnificent pieces of photography.

"For photography, the students are doing an exhibition within the exhibition - they have picked six different categories to enter and we are also showcasing the other work hey have done throughout the year so far," Mrs Schnickel said.

"Creative arts students will will have their Harmony Day pieces on display, and a 3D art piece where they had to find symbolism in some lyrics that they liked and they went through a process of finding some key word that they thought the author was trying to portray and interpret that into a 3D art piece.

"They also recently started on a a free choice piece for the exhibition.

"So it is a showcase of those four subjects culminating together."

She encouraged members of the public to come along to see what the students were working on.

"As much as it's great for the students to showcase their work, it also gives the opportunity for other people to see what integrated learning is all about as a subject."
