The pilot stated that after successfully completing six circuits and landings with an instructor on board he commenced a period of solo circuits. During the fourth circuit, on final approach for runway 29, he was instructed by air traffic control to go around and make a right hand circuit for runway 36, and cleared for a touch and go landing. A normal approach was carried out, then after touching down at 80 knots the aircraft ballooned slightly. The pilot lowered the nose allowing the aircraft to wheelbarrow on its nosewheel and veer sharply to the left. The pilot applied right rudder to correct the swing, but the aircraft continued to slide sideways into a large drain.
