All enrolments for CNK are via BKCES, therefore prior attendance does not automatically result in a place at CNBK. E.g. if wishing to attend in concurrent years, please ensure your child’s preferences via BKCES have CNBK as first preference.  Preferences can be changed at any time up to the closure date of first round offers to be considered in the first offers made by BKCES.
