Matthew John Keong, 48, was charged in November with three counts of indecent treatment of a child under 16, one count of rape and one count of unlawful intercourse involving a child under 12.

Keong did not enter a plea at a brief committal hearing in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The alleged offences occurred between 1993 and 1997 while he was working as a teacher in southeast Queensland.

Keong’s bail conditions include no unsupervised contact with children under the age of 16.

He is expected to face trial in Brisbane District Court.
