History and Religion teacher


Jake Whittaker, from Newcastle, NSW, is currently serving Prescott as the History & Religion Teacher. Transitioning from his pastoral role as chaplain, Jake now fully engages in classroom teaching. He guides students through various moments of history from Year 7 to Year 12 Modern History and deepens their understanding of belief in Year 11 and 12’s Spiritualities, Religion, and Meaning classes. At the core of his teaching lies a simple focus: to help students connect with the story of humanity. Jake’s classes are not just about historical events, but understanding our collective journey and considering one’s place in it.
