My student was on his 2ND solo. He was in the ash traffic pattern and had already completed 5-6 circuits. He was cleared for a 'low approach only' my student was confused with the clearance and interpreted it to mean to fly a lower than normal approach on final. He continued, landed, executed a stop and go (he had been stop and go on all previous lndgs). ATC informed him to call tower when he got in. We both spoke with the tower controller. I suggest that primary students be made aware of the 'low approach.' this is something that was never practiced or covered by my student and me. The 'low approach' versus the go around' should be covered also.

Title: AN SPI LANDED WITHOUT CLRNC.
Narrative: MY STUDENT WAS ON HIS 2ND SOLO. HE WAS IN THE ASH TFC PATTERN AND HAD ALREADY COMPLETED 5-6 CIRCUITS. HE WAS CLRED FOR A 'LOW APCH ONLY' MY STUDENT WAS CONFUSED WITH THE CLRNC AND INTERPRETED IT TO MEAN TO FLY A LOWER THAN NORMAL APCH ON FINAL. HE CONTINUED, LANDED, EXECUTED A STOP AND GO (HE HAD BEEN STOP AND GO ON ALL PREVIOUS LNDGS). ATC INFORMED HIM TO CALL TWR WHEN HE GOT IN. WE BOTH SPOKE WITH THE TWR CTLR. I SUGGEST THAT PRIMARY STUDENTS BE MADE AWARE OF THE 'LOW APCH.' THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WAS NEVER PRACTICED OR COVERED BY MY STUDENT AND ME. THE 'LOW APCH' VERSUS THE GAR' SHOULD BE COVERED ALSO.
