Corrimal PE teacher, Kurt Majoor.

CORRIMAL High School teacher, Kurt Majoor has been charged after allegedly developing a sexual relationship with a student.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Child Abuse Squad commenced an investigation earlier this month following reports the physical education teacher had allegedly developed an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old female student at a school.

Following investigations, the 25-year-old teacher was arrested at Wollongong Police Station about 6pm on Tuesday. He was charged with sexual intercourse with a person between 16 and 18 years of age, under special care.

Police will allege the man developed a relationship with the student online and organised to meet with her outside of school hours to have sex. The Child Abuse Squad is comprised of detectives who are specially trained to investigate crimes against children, including sexual assault, physical abuse and serious cases of neglect.

Majoor has been suspended with pay from his teaching position, and appeared in court on Wednesday. He was refused bail, and will be back in court in April.
