...a curriculum is the dynamic interplay of three interconnected processes: planning, enacting and evaluating. In this view, a curriculum is not just a design for learning, it is also the learning itself; it is both the plan and the enactment. The enacted curriculum is what happens in the classroom among learners and teacher...(Graves, 2016, p. 80)

A curriculum is the processes and products of planning, teaching and evaluating a course of study or related courses. (Graves, 2008)

The term curriculum is used here to refer to the overall plan or design for a course and how the content for a course is transformed into a blueprint for teaching and learning which enables the desired learning outcomes to be achieved. . . Once content has been selected t then needs to be organized into teachable and learnable units as well as arranged in rational sequence. The result is a syllabus.(Richards, 2013, p. 6)

A PROGRAMME is all of the courses or courses of study offered in a particular institution or department.A COURSE is a teaching/learning experience that occurs over a specific period of time with a specific focus. The term course is more appropriate in adult, tertiary and secondary education, where levels, year in school or courses of study are divided that way. It is not a good fit with primary education because of its holistic nature.A SYLLABUS is a plan for what is to be learned in a particular course or course of study.
