While conducting solo circuit training at Broken Hill the student pilot made a bounced landing, then failed to apply sufficient back pressure on the control column as the aircraft touched down again. The nose landing gear partially collapsed allowing the propeller to contact the runway. The pilot was not injured and later received additional dual circuit training from a club instructor.
