Following The Age newspaper article "Schools that excel: No detentions, no libraries, no problems for this girls' school", which claims that Siena College Camberwell in Victoria has abolished its library, Gaynor Robson-Garth, the Principal of Siena College, has written to ALIA stating that the article misrepresents the reality of the situation and that the school continues to have a library and employ qualified library staff. She clarified that the library was merely rebranded as the Albertus Magnus Learning Centre, and it continues to fulfil the essential work that school libraries provide to students.
