Snakey On Education

The following questions and answers have been lifted from a Dominion Post feature on education. These questions were asked of old boy Conrad Smith.

Favourite subject: History. A wise man once told me you understand more about the present when you learn about the past.

Teacher who changed my life and why: Lindsay McMorran, who taught me there is more to life than sport.

What was your educational turning point? Attending Francis Douglas, leaving behind all the girls that used to annoy me at primary school.

Best lesson learnt: If you want something done, ask the busiest person.

Why I took the educational path I did ...  I studied law with the plan to study journalism at the post-graduate stage, but law proved to be more enjoyable than I anticipated.

If I could change anything about my education: I wish I had learnt a foreign language ... it's very hard to start learning at 30.
