A TEACHER has been charged over the alleged repeated indecent assault of four young girls at a school on Sydney’s Lower North Shore.

The 51-year-old man was arrested at a home at Russell Lea just before 7.30am today after police launched an investigation following reports four students had been indecently assaulted by a teacher.
