In July 2016 the Shaftesbury Youth Travel Ambassadors set the whole school a challenge to design an Oyster card holder which displayed all the numbers to call in case of an emergency. The winning design was by James Fuller. Transport For London are currently printing 250 Oyster Card holders for each student in Shaftesbury. Well done James!
