The man is a teacher at a primary school north of Brisbane and is also a member of extra-curricular groups involving children. The CCC has notified the Department of Education and Training.
The man was granted watch house bail on the condition he not have any unsupervised contact with children.
He is scheduled to appear in the Caboolture Magistrates Court on July 23.
