He said the exhibition will also help in promoting the new school curriculum being implemented by Government.
And Horizon principal Salih Gulhan said about 70 pupils have been given bursary at the school.
“We work hand-in-hand with the Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education to offer bursary to some of our pupils, intelligence is one of the criteria we use in putting children on bursary.
