2. participating in the daily ritual of "Paying Tribute to ing the Ancestors"
3. reciting the IBWCA Pledge

The Nguzo Saba
The Seven Principles
Section II: Roles and Responsibilities of Teachers and Students
To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation,
To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak
for ourselves instead of being defined, named, created for and spoken for
UJIMA (Collective Work and Responsibility)
To build and maintain our community together and make our sister's
and brother's problems our problems and to solve them together.
UJAMAA (Cooperative Economics)
To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and
to profit from them together.
To make our collective vocation the building and developing our community
in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave
our community more beautiful and beneficial then we inherited it.
To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers,
our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
The Roles and Responsibilities
of Walimu and Wanafunzi
THE MWALIMU (TEACHER) MWANAFUNZI
(STUDENT) relationship is of major importance and must be understood and
adhered to if an atmosphere of learning, discipline, and respect is to
be created. In the final analysis, we are all students, but some of us
have been students longer and have acquired a body of knowledge that must
be passed on to those who are just entering formal life-studies. We call
the teacher MWALIMU and the student being introduced to knowledge, we refer
to as MWANAFUNZI. No institutions can advance intellec- tually, culturally,
or politically, unless there are dedicated and sincere WALIMU with an equally
committed WANAFUNZI. The Mwalimu and the Mwanafunzi are equally responsible
to each other and must develop an unbreakable trust between themselves.
The following points should be observed by
all WALIMU (Teachers).
1. Be the example of what you teach. Your personal contradictions can wipe
out years of hard work. You must be direction for the young, be what you
teach, exemplifying the Black Value System NGUZO SABA.
2. Always impart knowledge with an eye on reality. Pull your examples from
the real world that we are involved in daily. High sounding philosophy
belongs in philosophy classes that divorce themselves from life. Knowledge
without understanding and practical application is like owning land without
being able to cultivate it.
3. Never tire of teaching. An instructor who believes in what he is teaching
can teach anywhere and at anytime and is always prepared to teach; his
lifestyle should be a lesson. Concentrate on the four ingredients for an
African reality: to work, to study, to create, and to build.
4. The developing of the moral, spiritual, and physical well-being of the
students is of the uppermost imperative. A student should never be held
back in fact, a teacher should be eager for his student to surpass him;
this is a reward for doing his job well.
5. In order to develop the communal spirit to the highest, the instructor
must be conscious of and concerned about the student' s well being outside
the classroom. Make sure that the student has all basic needs in order
to develop his mind, body, and spirit .
6. The student should be encouraged to investigate all areas of
life-studies. The student should be given equal time and attention in accordance
with his personal ability. Push the complimentary and cooperative aspects
of learning and encourage involvement with man and nature, and independent
study. Never betray a trust, and discipline should be strict, quick, and
7. All teaching should be based upon tradition and reason, and be taught
theoretically and scientifically, the emphasis always on Afrikan man in
relation to his community community-centered rather than man-centered;
emphasizing the responsibility of the students to their community, organization,
and family; always communal ism over commercialism.
The following points should be observed
by all WANAFUNZI ( Students ):
1. The student is the nation becoming. The good student never tires of
learning. The secret of knowledge is that the good students can learn anything,
anyplace, and any time.
2. The good student is committed committed to the institution/organization,
committed to his people, and committed to the acquisition of knowledge
that will aid his people therefore aiding himself.
3. The good student lives the Black Value System Nguzo Saba and is
the example for the younger brothers and sisters .
4. The good student knows that to move from black purpose to Afrikan Reality
four ingredients are needed: Work, Study, Creativity, and Building.
5. Remember that a student' s conduct outside the organization reflects
the organization. To do in justice one day out of 365 days could wipe out
the whole year' s work.
6. The spirit of sharing and learning; must be with the student at all
times. But if he does not know any thing there will be nothing for him
7. The student must develop good study habits, always show a willingness
to learn, and always be respectful to the instructor. Address all male
instructors with [Mr. or Doctor] and all female instructors with [Mrs.,
Ms. or Doctor.]
8. Knowledge without understanding and practical application is useless
if you do not understand something ask questions. One who continually
asks questions does not show stupidity or ignorance he shows a thirst
for knowledge. One who nits and absorbs everything without question is
like a sponge with his head is full of water. Challenge your instructors
to give you all the knowledge they have.

Section III: Role and Responsibility
of Faculty, Parents and Staff
1. Never be overawed by authority. Not at any time whatever, nor
for any reason whatsoever, can any one with safety or profit permit his
faculty-of-thought to take a "sabbatical," least of all when that individual's
mind is exposed to the thoughts of other people.
2. Be open to conviction, but refuse to be convinced until conviction
becomes a necessity. In other words, do not imprison your mind in the padded
cell of the comfortable rut of your own preferred beliefs, prejudices,
biases, or egocentricity.
3. Read little, think deeply and much. Avoid acquiring the grasshopper
mind. Books are highly suggestive, therefore, choose your authors with
care. Take time to think through the full implications and connotations
of what you read, testing its validity from as many angles as you can.
Even nourishing food leads to indigestion if swallowed whole. Avoid mental
indigestion at all costs. It is not to be cured merely by going to the
4. Seek TRUTH and pursue it, to the extent of remaking your own
mind no matter what the cost, should it become necessary. Never forget
that the "superstitions" of today were the "truths' of yesterday; the "truths"
of today will be the "superstitions" of tomorrow. Do not allow them "permanent
residence" in your mind. Seek not mere "knowledge" but UNDERSTANDING. Perchance
WISDOM may follow. One thing is certain: Only when the rational mind is
stilled can the ears of Understanding open to the voice of Wisdom.
5. If you must lie, lie to others; they will find you out and know
you for the fool that you are. But if you lie to yourself, you are a lost
6. Learn to "think beyond the thoughts of men that lean on things they
see." Inevitably they become "obsessed by the perceptible to such an
extent that, for them, thinking has become synoymous with repeating parrot-fashion
the cast-off-thoughts of others, with less intelligence than the (so-called)
"dumb" animals. On no account should you visit that Club, much less join
7. Make it your golden rule, never to be broken, NOT under any circumstances
to consult any author on any subject until you shall first have thought
deeply about it meditative act and shall have reached some conclusions,
no matter how tentative. Remember at all times: NOTHING BELONGS TO YOU
EXCEPT YOUR MIND HAS HAD A HAND IN ITS FORMULATION. The moral is obvious:
ensure by every means at your disposal, that your mind is actively functioning
on oiled wheels, and that it functions as your servant and not your enslaver
8. Heed well the words of Herbert Spencer: "There is a principle which
is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments,
and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance: That Principle
is contempt prior to investigation."

HELP FOR STUDENTS
If you find that you are having difficulty in any of your subjects,
please ask for help from your
teacher. See your teacher before school, after school or during recess.
Don't wait too long
before seeking help.
In order to cover the subject matter expected of students, it is essential
to assign homework in most of your subjects. Check with your teachers for
the proper way to study their subjects.
Learning to study will be the key to your success.
If a student, (grade 6 - 8), has an average of 85 or higher with no

work. However, extenuating circumstances
may require the teacher or administrator to grant a longer time period
to complete make- up
work. (One week equals 7 calendar days.)

belongings. Students are encouraged to mark all clothing (especially physical
