The student pilot was performing a touch-and-go landing when the aircraft veered to the left of the runway centreline. Despite attempting to maintain directional control, the pilot was unsuccessful and the aircraft left the runway and travelled along the grass. It then collided with a fibreglass boundary marker before coming to rest against the bank of a drainage ditch, causing the nose gear to separate.
