  1. I grew up with Peter at Bell Park High all those years ago. We played footy, tennis and listened to his Roy Orbinson records. Whilst I left Geelong many years ago for work and family pursuits I remember Peter Martella with much affection and fond memories. My heartfelt condolences to Peter’s family and friends.

  2. I’m so sad to hear of the passing of Peter. I’ve got very fond memories of working with Peter at Portarlington PS, South Geelong PS and the Regional Office. Your professionalism, caring demeanour and dedication was greatly appreciated. You were a valuable member of our staff and a good friend.
    Rest peacefully Peter
    Fond Regards
    Denise and the staff at Portarlington PS
