It is with great sadness that we mark the recent passing of Christine Stanford, former Chair of the Maranoa Regional Education Group (MREG), Qld. Christine passed away in March after a prolonged illness.

Over many years Christine worked tirelessly to improve opportunities for local school leavers through MREG, which she helped establish in 2008.

Her resilience was an example to us all… On a number of occasions she called us from her hospital bed to discuss CEF business, saying she would prefer to pass the time doing something useful than to focus on her illness. At a time when she was entitled to think only of herself, she was only thinking of others.

Christine was someone we all felt privileged to know. We all miss her and our hearts and warmest wishes go out to her family at this very sad time.
