The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is an internationally recognized agreement between nations which establishes a comprehensive set of goals for individual nations to achieve on behalf of their children. Indonesia ratified this convention on August 25 th , 1990 with Indonesia Presidential Decree number 36/1990. Schools are ideal places for students to learn, to exercise, and to experience their rights. Child Friendly Schools are the ones that respect the childrens’ rights. Based on concept of child friendly school we can design classroom practices which are child-centered and learning-friendly, a thematic classroom. Thematic classrooms designed in this project have led to bring about collaborative learning which could increase the amount of students’ participation in the classrooms. They also provide comfortable environments in which students can learn and practice their own rights.
