Narrative:
The instructor/supervisor reported that the student pilot was engaged in solo crosswind circuit practice. It was the pilot's first landing for this session. It appeared that the pilot misjudged the approach and the aircraft bounced back into the air following the first touchdown. Instead of entering a go-around, the pilot attempted to recover for a normal landing. During this process the aircraft touched down nose wheel first, causing the nose wheel leg to fail in overload. The propeller struck the ground and the aircraft slid to a stop on the runway.
