Canisius Secondary School is one of the earliest centres of learning in Zambia. It is located at Chikuni Mission about 10 km east of Chisekesi town in Monze District in the Southern Province.
The history of the school starts with the founding of Chikuni Mission in July 1905 by Catholic Church missionary Fr Joseph Moreau S.J, of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) order of priests. The school is named after Saint Peter Canisius (Petrus Canisius), the first Dutchman to join the Jesuits. Primary schools were started at Chikuni and surrounding areas from the time the mission was founded, but it was only in August 1949 that the secondary school was opened.
In 2009, the school celebrated 60 years of education to the people of Zambia.

Famous quotes containing the words school and/or secondary:
“And so they have left us feeling tired and old.
They never cared for school anyway.
And they have left us with the things pinned on the bulletin board.
And the night, the endless, muggy night that is invading our school.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
“Scientific reason, with its strict conscience, its lack of prejudice, and its determination to question every result again the moment it might lead to the least intellectual advantage, does in an area of secondary interest what we ought to be doing with the basic questions of life.”
—Robert Musil (18801942)
