All the pupils wore pink on Friday - a number going one step further by sporting pink hairstyles - to raise money for the breast cancer campaign, Wear It Pink Day.
The school's PTA also held a coffee morning which was attended by a number of craft and pamper stalls.
Headteacher Paula Hagan said: "It's an incredible result for a small school and the money was raised in just under two hours.
