Callback: Reward for hard work 

JESSIKA Fisher, Alicia Gardoni and Madeleine Silsby have danced their way towards a high mark in their practical High School Certificate examinations.

The three Mount St Benedict College students have been nominated for Callback — a showcase of the best performances and compositions by year 12 students.

Alicia was nominated for her core performance and major study performance, while Madeleine was nominated for the same two components plus her core composition.

Jessika, who was nominated for her core performance said the accolade was unexpected.

"I had worked hard but I didn't think my technique was high enough compared to the other girls," she said.

"I was putting in a lot of extra time at lunch and practising every chance I had at dance.

"There were a lot of extra hours outside of school so it's good to know the work paid off."

The 17-year-old said her dance skills had developed since she first decided to twirl and spin as a toddler.

"I used to have tantrums outside my brother's dance class so the teacher let me join in," she said.

She said the nomination had provided her with extra motivation as she completes her finale written HSC exams.

"It definitely made me study harder," she said.

The Kellyville resident said credit had to go to their teacher Leanne Zarb.

In December the girls will find out if their nominations have been successful. Callback performance and workshop dates will be held on February 7-8.
