7 November 1974
Reference from the Principal of Wodonga High School, Mr Alan Cracknell. It is clear from the reference that Terry was very involved in his school at every level. His involvement in sport, class and school leadership roles led the school Principal to consider Terry a ''reliable and stable student''. Unfortunately for Terry, his HSC performance suffered in his final school year as his father Les Stone, diagnosed with terminal cancer, passed away over the exam period. The reference was written before Les Stone's diagnosis became known.
