He was very tall and I think he forgot to duck on one occasion while entering the class, at least I think that was the reason for him flopping unconscious on the floor. Great teacher and a nice guy.
Amazing teacher, made English come alive!!,
I left Shawlands in 1993, and still remember Mr Whittaker's helpful and inspiring teaching style. He introduced me to John Steinbeck's books, for which I am very grateful!
I never actually had him as a teacher, but who didn't like Mr Whittaker - he was seen as one of the coolest teachers in the place! (Left 1989)
very good teacher, makes jokes and tells stories to make english funner.
he was a fantastic teacher and a nice guy, but was a long time ago, left shawlands in 87
