Memorial Event for Dr Pam Whiteley & Mrs Nicola Smith
The main hall at Wayland Community High School was packed with staff & pupils
standing for the dedication of a memorial garden to celebrate the lives of Dr Pam Whiteley and
Mrs Nicola Smith who died in September after years of unstinting service to the students of the school.
The Headteacher, Michael Rose introduced the Rev Canon Mair Talbot.
John Briton read a poem and Deputy Headteacher Trefor Parry gave a eulogy to remember
the enormous contribution the two teachers had made to the school over many years.
Students Jade Brown, Helen Samuels and Alesha Cook sang a song called 'The Brightest Star'
especially written for the occasion by Jade. Then followed the dedication by Canon Talbot.
The very emotional event was attended by Simon Whiteley and James and Elizabeth, two
of  Dr Whiteley's three children. Unfortunately  Matthew Smith was unable to attend.

Two trees, a winter flowering cherry  and a summer flowering cherry, named Pamela and Nicola,are
to be planted in the remembrance garden where two seats dedicated to the teachers have been placed.
