Immaculate Conception School hosts mock presidential debate in Norwood

Students in Norwood held a mock presidential debate Monday.



Immaculate Conception students as young as 10 years old were split into groups of Democrats and Republicans, while seventh and eighth-graders acted as debate moderators.



Some students even acted as party front runners like Trump, Cruz, Clinton and Sanders.



The students prepared for a month to get ready for the debate. 



School officials say they hope the mock debate teaches students lifelong skills and helps them better understand parts of the political system.
