Episode 30 of Visions looks at a unique partnership between the University and Mission Australia which is helping disadvantaged students around Heidelberg make a successful move from primary to secondary school. We also do a follow up on one of our favourite stories from last year - the rope ladder helping endangered squirrel gliders and other native animals to cross the Hume Highway safely near Benalla. Click above to check out the first pictures of the rope bridge in action.
An innovative partnership between Mission Australia and the University of Melbourne is aiming to help African students make successful transitions from primary to secondary school.

Animal Overpass Update:
In Episode 7 (click here to watch) we brought you the story of an animal overpass for the Hume Highway. The first of its kind in Victoria, the rope bridge was installed to allow native animals to safely cross the road, and they are now doing just that.
The project was established by researchers from the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology (ARCUE) based at the Royal Botanic Gardens, University of Melbourne, Monash University and VicRoads.
