OK -- we are talking about WikiCalendar, not PmCal :)

What you need to do is:
1. set up pages called
[[Curriculum.HomePage | Curriculum Calendar]]
[[Curriculum.GroupHeader]] containing (:wikilog:)
This will create date pages called Curriculum.20050909 (for example)
These pages form the "Curriculum" group.
2. set up another group of pages called
[[Test.HomePage | Test Calendar]]
[[Test.GroupHeader]] containing (:wikilog:)
This will create date pages called Test.20050909
These pages form the "Test" group.
And that should be it.
In PmWiki, a group comes into existence by adding a page to it.
Strictly, a group is similar to a namespace -- a way to qualify
a name so that it is distinguished from another.
All the pages starting with 'Test.' are in the Test group; all
the pages starting with "Curriculum." are in the Curriculum group.
PmWIki doesn't support pages of the form Text1.Text2.Text3 -- however,
it would be possible to extend the WikiCalendar so that pages of the
form Group.Prefix,yyyymmdd were recognised. This is a form of
"subpage markup" and to date there has never been a good enough
reason to add this extra level of complexity. It could be done,
but try it with each calendar in a separate group first.
