A gravity-powered family achievement

Prince of Peace Lutheran College’s Beard siblings are making a name for themselves in the gravity-powered sport of street luge.

Ammon Beard is currently ranked first in Junior Street Luge, Hannah Beard is third in Junior Street Luge and first in Female Junior Street Luge and Ben Beard is ranked fifth in his age group in Australia.  Street luge involves competitors laying on their backs, feet first, on a specially designed luge board and racing down a hill course of curves.

The Beards are wonderful examples of one of the College’s guiding principles: growth through challenge. Participants in a sport like street luge need to demonstrate resilience and grit, and be prepared to put in effort to practice and develop mastery.

Congratulations to Ammon, Hannah and Ben on their preparedness to pursue their passion and demonstrate personal excellence.
