It was reported that the solo student pilot made a normal approach to runway 36 but elected to start a go-around because the aircraft was not aligned with the runway centreline. As the pilot applied full power the nose yawed to the left. At this point, and contrary to training, the pilot selected the flaps to the take-off position. The aircraft descended, touching down to the left of the strip. It then ran off the runway and flight strip and into a rough area suffering extensive damage in the process.
