Singer Jacky Cheung Hok-yau has apologised for once mistakenly assuming that the student support group Hok Yau Club had stolen his name. 'When I first started my showbiz career I wondered why was that club using my name. 'But recently I found out that the Hok Yau Club has existed for 60 years, so I think perhaps it was my father who copied their name,' said Cheung, who was appointed as the club's ambassador this week to coincide with its 60th anniversary. 'Now, I want to apologise for the mix-up.' Cheung (left) said he had long wanted to be the club's ambassador and wondered why they hadn't asked him earlier. 'I think they wanted me to become the ambassador to mark the 60th anniversary to make it even more special.' Meanwhile, Cheung told students not to be concerned about the New Senior Secondary (NSS) curriculum that begins at schools in September. 'After becoming ambassador, I studied the new curriculum. It's better than the old system since apart from core subjects such as Chinese, English and maths, students are free to pick other subjects, including those in the arts,' said Cheung. 'If there had been a system like this in place 20 years ago, I think I would have continued my education instead of quitting school when i did.' Cheung reached Form Seven at North Point's Literary College. The singer said he didn't want to set high expectations for his two young daughters. 'My wife is like most mothers: she wants them to become professionals such as doctors or lawyers. I just want them to be good people.'
