The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her caring side once again as she stepped out following the Easter break for the opening of a school for excluded children in London this week.

Catherine looked stunning in a forest green dress, reportedly worth £495 (AU$920), for the special visit to the Pears Family School where she met with eager young students.

With her hair styled down in its usual slightly waved look, the mother-of-three smiled broadly while chatting about the importance of education for all.

The school, which is a part of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families’ new north London headquarters, plays a particular focus on helping kids with complex needs.

It does this by working together with medical and educational professionals including leading practitioners in neuroscience, mental health, social care, child development and research. Unlike mainstream schools, the education facility gives children aged between five and 14 the opportunity to work alongside a parent or a significant adult family member in classroom activities.

“Today’s visit to open the new Centre for Excellence marks The Duchess of Cambridge’s continued desire to draw attention to child mental health issues and the importance of early intervention, and working with the whole family, can make to those in vulnerable situations,” the royal family wrote in an Instagram post alongside a series of beautiful photographs.

“Her Royal Highness is keen to draw attention to the ways in which this charity is working to lead a step change in children’s and young people’s mental health care.”

According to the publication Leo, 13, went into a downwards spiral following the death of his mum, struggling with his feelings of anger and loneliness.

He found it difficult to settle into life at school and so was thankfully accepted into Pears Family School where he was helped with his behaviour in a different environment. After a year of study the young boy is reportedly moving back into mainstream education.

“I was nine when my mum died, and I wasn’t doing fine, I let angry and alone, and felt I had nowhere to go,” The Daily Mail reports he told Kate in the rap.

“Now I am 13 and I’m living fine, trying to get back to school so I can live my life, I’ve had good and bad times at TFS [The Family School], I’ve put some stuff to the test, thank god my anger has now gone to rest, cause [sic] now I can really do my best.”

Do you like Catherine’s outfit? What do you think of the work she does to help others?
