Croydon Park Business Chamber board members Cheryl Borsak, Kim Beltran & Troy Batta and founding member Hassan Moussa visited Strathfield MP Jodi Mackay to congratulate her on becoming the leader for the opposition party in NSW Government.

Strathfield MP Jodi McKay was elected as the New South Wales Labor leader with a clear majority.

Courtesy ABC news:

Key points:

  • The election of Ms McKay came three months after the state election
  • The party has been without a permanent leader for that time
  • It means for the first time in NSW, a female opposition leader will face a female premier

We also took the opportunity to discuss:

  • The ongoing clean-up for the cooks river concerning building code for hard surfaces to prevent run off in to the river
  • $2000 grant for computing and printing equipment
  • Canterbury race course building development proposals
  • Local News Letter for GRR local business and Croydon Park small businesses

Q1. What has inspired you to open your Business ATOP Education?
I had been in an education Franchise, which I had developed to a total of 500 students per week for 23 years. Even with that number, I was not making enough money to keep my family as the royalties required were 40% and we were restricted in what we could charge. I had gained tremendous knowledge over that time and felt it was time to go into my own after school business. As I had come to teaching via a Sydney University Science Degree, this gave me the advantage of adding to the subjects that we could teach, such as Computer Coding and Robotics. Additionally, I had a very good mathematics teacher who was prepared to remain with me. He will eventually take over when I retire.
Q2. Has the Business always been in Croydon?
When we had the franchise, I operated mainly in Burwood but it was difficult to obtain accommodation there, as there is an afternoon tutoring service on every corner and in just about every building, so we decided to try Croydon.
Q3. When did you open this Business?
1st February 2011.
Q4 How did you hear of the CPBC?
I had been a member of the Burwood Chamber of Commerce for many years, however, as we were now at Croydon and they do not have a Chamber of Commerce of their own, when a friend mentioned that Croydon Park was very active, I decided to attend one of their events.
Q5. What made you continue to be a member of the CPBC?
When I met Toni and Silvana, I could see what they were doing for the community and this influenced me in signing up as a member.
Q6. Why do you continue to be a member of the CPBC?
For one thing, I had been introduced to the Principal of the Croydon Park School by the CPBC and from then on, have had the pleasure of giving three awards every year, one each for the Most Improved Students in 6th class for English, Maths and Science. I look forward to this occasion every year and this binds me to the Croydon Park area. Also I am happy to lend a hand or sponsor a prize in any event that the CPBC endeavours.
Q7. What would you like the CPBC to achieve for the members for 2019?
Well, firstly, keep up the great work they are doing and foster that sense of community which can help bring prosperity to the businesses in this area.

Q8. What do you think of the CPYC?
I think it is a brilliant concept as the youth of to-day are the mainstays of our future and this is the first chamber of commerce that I have been involved with that has this attribute.
Q9. Since joining the CPBC, which event or seminar has stood out.
I always enjoy the CPBC’s Annual meetings. Their street fairs are always fun and there was a dinner I once attended that introduced me to many interesting people.
Q10. If you are to use one word to sum up the CPBC and one word for the CPYC what would it be.

Hi We are a local public school in the Inner West that is hosting the fourth annual Inner West Brick Fair on Sunday 30 June 2019. Being a public school we rely heavily on the goodwill of our community to get the word out about these events. The day is a great one for Lego lovers both young and old. With special guest Henry Pinto of Lego Masters Australia fame it should be our best yet. Attached is our flyer which we would love if you could post for your followers as a way of support Thank you.

Council is supporting the Red Shield Appeal! Head to Strathfield Square on Sat 18 May from 11am – 2pm for a sausage sizzle and show your support!
