On return from a solo flying training exercise, the student pilot allowed the aircraft to land on all three wheels simultaneously. The aircraft bounced and the pilot applied some power in an attempt to rectify the situation. He then landed a second time, however the landing was heavy, resulting in damage to the nose wheel and the propeller striking the runway. The aircraft finally came to rest with the nose wheel completely separated from the nose undercarriage strut.
