The curriculum is the whole experience the child gets in school, not only the 'formal' time tabled part. It includes all those activities which take place in school time as well as after school activities of a voluntary nature. There is also the 'hidden' curriculum, which finds its expression in the complex pattern of the school life, and the experiences it affords.
