Clearly, this year, the Léonard-de-Vinci trades high school particularly stood out in the MAF competition “One of the Best Apprentices in France” organized by the MOF company. After the medalists Romain Guillon and Erwann Guillot, students in the final bac pro Iccer class, it is Ange-Hyppolite Le Floch in the first bac pro professions and stone arts class, who wins a double gold medal, departmental and regional, after only a few months of practicing stone cutting.

These medals open the doors to the national event which will take place on June 7 in Lyon. It will present its blind railing in Tercé limestone in Gothic style, representing sixty hours of work including the outline.

A great discovery at college

Aged 19, originally from the Paris region, living in Barbezieux for several years, he already holds a general baccalaureate, after which he moved towards an AES degree (economic and social administration) at the university. “I had left to go to Sciences Po,” says the young man, “I didn’t like it. The same goes for this license… I remembered my discovery of stone cutting at the Sainte-Marie college in Barbezieux, a workshop which was led by a former student of Jérôme Godreau, our stone cutting teacher at the Léonard de Vinci high school and MOF, juror with Pierre Saint-Armand also MOF. Ultimately, I liked the experience and got back in touch. It’s confirmed that I really like stone cutting. »

Ange-Hyppolite Le Floch, who is exempt from theoretical subjects, focuses on technology. He is doing a work-study apprenticeship with the high school at the M’Rick Taille de Pierre company in Léognan. “We are doing renovations,” says the apprentice stonemason, “veneering, major construction sites, new houses, pillars, balusters, a hat, a wine castle cartouche… and soon a church. » This is why Ange-Hyppolite will compete in the Skills Olympiads on October 17, 18 and 19 at the Parc des Expositions in Bordeaux.
