Teacher Natasha Pasmore said: "The school is delighted with how much we have raised in just half an hour selling cakes and drinks at 50p.
"The children have been really keen to support those who have been affected by the Philippines disaster and they have done really well with this fundraising event."
The money raised will be enough to fund a shelter for a whole family as well as a warmth and protection kit provided by ShelterBox.
