Brief History

Our new national school was built in Shielbaggan in 1998 and was officially opened on June 5th 2001. It is now called Scoil Naomh Úna, named after a holy well situated close to the school. The new school replaced the old school which was built during the time of the famine and was used as a soup kitchen.The St. Louis Sisters taught here for many years up until the early 1980’s.

Mission Statement

Shielbaggan National School (Scoil Naomh Úna) is a Catholic School in the parish of Ramsgrange and has as it’s Patron, the Bishop of Ferns – Bishop Denis Brennan. Shielbaggan National School hopes to instill confidence and self-esteem in the children, and thus enabling them to reach their own potential academically and socially, to have respect for themselves, others and the environment. We seek to develop in our pupils, an appreciation and respect for their own culture and heritage and to develop into self-disciplined, well-behaved adults. Shielbaggan National School also encourages the involvement of parents in all day to day activities to do with the school. Déanfaimid iarracht Gaeilge a labhairt agus an timpeallacht a h-úsáid trí na h-ábhair uilig – stair, nádúr,tíreolaíocht srl..
