Started my teaching career under his guidance. I will always remember his wicked sense of humour and wide smile.

A very Special Uncle. Loved his sense of humour , his unique turn of phrase, (always made me smile), and his interaction with the "3 Stellas"

Rachael and family(s). Sending you my condolences as you prepare to farewell your father. He had a great presence and certainly had an effect on me as a student at Kapiti College. In all my dealings with him he was incredibly fair and you certainly knew where you stood with him. A long time has passed since those days (1970's Kapiti Coast) yet I am sure Peter will long be remembered as having a positive influence on many young people that he met.

He was an incredible educator, a true gentleman, extremely firm in his convictions, with a laconic wit. Equal parts authoritarian old-school and unflinchingly fair in his dealings with us as young people. I was both terrified and deeply respectful of his leadership at Kapiti College from 1974-78. Rest peacefully Mr Goodwin. Your life had an enormous effect on many young people on the Kapiti Coast.

From the grads of Kapiti College 1978 Deepest sympathies to his family He was an incredible educator, a true gentleman, extremely firm in his convictions, with a laconic wit. Equal parts authoritarian old-school and unflinchingly fair in his dealings with us as young people. I was both terrified and deeply respectful of his leadership at Kapiti College. He remembered our year group fondly when I last made contact in 2020. The last words I know he ever spoke of me then were "She was a very sensible girl". It was an honour that he remembered me. Rest peacefully. Your life had an enormous effect on many young people on the Kapiti Coast.

Mr Goodwin (Peter) was an incredibly devoted educator, a true gentleman, extremely firm in his convictions, with a laconic wit. Equal parts authoritarian old-school and unflinchingly fair in his dealings with us as young people. I was both terrified and deeply respectful of his leadership at Kapiti College. On behalf of all the students from our year, we send deepest condolences. He remembered our year group fondly when I last made contact in 2020. The last words I know he ever spoke of me then were "She was a very sensible girl". I was honoured that he remembered. Rest peacefully.
