They appeared happy that they were allowed to leave the classroom early.

“The teacher couldn’t bear to tell them the truth…” the caption read. “It wasn’t until the students’ aunt came to pick them up…”

When they learned the truth, they began to cry loudly, the user said.

According to the user, the siblings are in Year 1, 2, and 3 — the equivalent of Primary 1, 2, and 3 in Malaysia.

“At the time I was not in a good mood as my mum had died,” they added, noting that their aunt took care of them from a young age.

Another user replied to them and shared that their aunt also took care of them when they were younger.

Unfortunately, after they grew up, their aunt passed away earlier this year.

Others also had friends who received similar news while they were in school.
