DR. ANDREA DEWDNEY-GOLDSON
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, third in a family of four girls, she describes herself as a “frustrated tomboy” at best.

Dr. Dewdney is now married with two adult children, and her hobbies include ornamental fish farming and visiting Negril.
DR. ANDREW BURTON
Dr Andrew Burton is a faith-centred, fun-loving physician who enjoys his career as a ministry to children and families almost as much as he loves to smile.

His other passions include music, socialising, travel and volunteerism.
DR. AVINASH SRINIVAS
I’m Dr. Avinash Srinivas. I graduated from the University of the West Indies and worked at the UHWI from 2004 to 2011 before joining the Kidz Klinik team.
I love being with kids, and sometimes I’m more of a kid than the kids themselves. 😊
I love playing around with computers, breaking them (accidentally), and then having to fix them.
I am married with one son. My son terrorizes us. I guess that makes him a terrorist!
DR. BARRINGTON HOUSTON
Represented both institutions in table tennis, but I never won anything, so don’t ask for proof of my skills.
Married with three children.
DR. BRIDGET FFRENCH
DR. INDIRA SINGH
Born in Georgetown, Guyana, Dr. Singh acquired her undergraduate medical degree from the University of Guyana School of Medicine.

Loves sports and, in her younger days, captained the netball and volleyball team. 110-yard sprinter as well as 4 x 110 relayer who ran for her black-and-gold alma mater at Champs. Also a high jumper, but not to be confused with the other Janet Burke!
Dr. Burke trained to Grade V as a pianist and played Grade VII in the festival competition. She loves, music, dancing, singing, chocoloate, ackee and saltfish, pear, and breadfruit.
DR. JOHN ROYES
An avid sports fanatic whose first love was football, probably inherited from his Dad, who had the honour of captaining Jamaica in both football and track. Dr. Royes represented the University of the West Indies and then August Town at Major League level and was subsequently invited by Coach Leighton Duncan to play for Cavaliers Football Club late in 1981. God never allowed him to realise this dream, as a severe knee injury early in 1982 effectively ended his athletic aspirations.
Dr. Royes represented his beloved alma mater, Wolmer’s Boys’ School (about which he has written a book), in field hockey and subsequently played for the Blackhawks Club at Senior League level in that sport. He is a 6th degree black belt in Seido Karate and enjoys SCUBA diving and spearfishing.
He married Valerie, a fellow doctor, in 1979, and he is now widowed with two adult children (Stephen and Mark), two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren.
Dr. Royes is a Christian who attends Swallowfield Chapel and who is extremely grateful to the Almighty God (the “El Shaddai”) for his constant presence and help through the years.

grossly testify “that when the rhythm and music hits you, you feel no pain”. Dr. Pike is an
executive member of the Holy Childhood High School Alumnae Association, where her current
