How do we get subsidy?
It’s based on the type if house you stay (at least for DS school)
even for my DS school, different trips got different % of subsidy
Different schools, different trips, different criteria. You will have to check with your child’s school.

welcome! I actually think its a good opportunity for the kids but provided they are mentally ready
my kid told me that there were some kids who missed home and cried and wanted to call home
but was not allowed because it would be unfair to the rest of the kids
