What to teach in a school classroom has never been a challenge in mainstream schools as there is always a prescribed curriculum especially when the words curriculum and textbook have become synonymous. But the contextualisation of the curriculum has always been a challenge. As teachers, we are required to follow a prescribed curriculum for our children in the school. We are the part of a diverse nation and thus it is not possible for any institution to develop a curriculum which accommodates the diverse needs of the people living in this country. The role of the school and the teacher becomes extremely important in the contextualisation of curriculum.
