Servite Domino in laetitia! (Serve the Lord joyfully!)
My name is Jason Borkowski and I am the Principal at Cloverdale Catholic School in Surrey, BC.
I am a father of seven and have been married for 20 years. I love my family, my church, and my job and pretty much consider myself the luckiest man alive.
I decided to start blogging mostly to give parents at my school some insight into what is going on in my brain, but hopefully other educators and other parents will find something worth reading.

I love your kids and I love this school. That said, I am super excited to get away from it all for the next two weeks! Enjoy your time together as a family.
In honour of tonight’s 1980’s themed dinner/auction, I offer you a glimpse into my 10 year old brain…
Over the course of my 20 years in Catholic education I have worked directly with 6 pastors and dozens of assistant pastors. Over that time, I have had the opportunity to see the good and the bad of Parish life and life as a priest. Being a priest, and particularly being a pastor, can be a difficult and lonely job.
Stories matter. Stories are the way we pass on our cultures values, traditions, expectations, and wisdom. Over the course of history, whether it be around a fire or in front of a television, people gathered to share common experiences.
“I think we are in very dangerous waters and we need to be more vigilant than ever about how are kids are connecting online and who they are connecting to.”
