Each school year, hundreds of Evan Hardy students get involved in many extra-curricular clubs, activities, and sports. Coaches and supervising staff members recognize this participation in a variety of ways. Each team typically gives out individual awards at the end of the season, while at the school level, overall participation is used to determine winners of the "Active Soul" awards, which are presented at the year-end awards ceremony called Colour Day. This is a great achievement and demonstrates a level of commitment and responsibility that may help with future endeavors (references, resume, post-secondary recommendations, etc.). Becoming involved in extra-curricular activities is a great way to have fun, show school spirit, meet new people, build skills, and make memories that last a lifetime.
