THEMES MEDIA – Publishers of Education Magazines Since 1998

The THEMES EDUCATION MAGAZINES (Themes Media) established in 1998 by an independent group of directors interested in raising the profile of education throughout Victoria. The magazines were developed as a direct result of feedback from the schools wanting an education specific platform. Themes Media became a division of Star News Group in 2006. Star News Group has been within the Thomas family for over 100 years and successfully publishes a number of newspapers and magazines throughout Victoria and Interstate. Since 2006 Themes Media /Star News Group has produced several schools guides focusing on specific aspects of the various education streams such as, the Catholic Education magazine, the Secondary Education magazine, Primary and Early Learning and a number of other subject, specific publications as well as those focusing on education in regions within Victoria. These magazines are in a handy A5 format and now include the new A4 guide to Victoria’s Independent and Catholic schools. All of these publications are delivered to a specific target audience at times when these parents are making decisions regarding their children’s future education. The new website is a welcome addition and when used in conjunction with the hard copy magazine is a useful research tool as many parents seek further information.


• Provides schools with a direct line of communication with parents.

• Produced at specific decision making times for parents and their children – so it is in their homes when they most need the information.
