St. Peter High School EAs to share million dollar lottery prize
By Fred Sherwin

A group of nine education assistants at St. Peter High School in Fallingbrook will soon be heading down to Toronto to pick up their million dollar cheque after winning one of the prizes in the Lotto Max MAXMILLIONS on Friday.

Each EA will recieve $111,111.11. It's not exactly one, but it's more than enough to buy a new car, pay off a few bills, or take a Christmas vacation somewhere warm.

Dave Watt says he plans to use his share of the money to pay off the new car he bought last week, while Linda Hamilton is thinking of yaking her husband of almost 25 years on a trip to Australia.

"It's not life-changing as much as it's life-altering. It definitely puts a spring in your step," says Hamilton, who only started working at St. Peter this year after moving over from St. Matthew High School.

Educational assistants act as support staff providing assistance with special needs students on an ongoing basis.

The group of nine EAs only started buying lottery tickets three weeks ago.

When Watts found out they had won the million dollars he wasn'y sure how to react.

"I felt numb initially. It was just 'wow'," said Watts.

To demonstrate the thin line between winning the big prize or just a few bucks, a young Navan man hit five of six numbers on Saturday's Lotto 6/49. His prize? $2,030.60.
