The theme of the second part is “Spark of Life”. Over the past 104 years, the alumni of Tsinghua University High School in all walks of life have made outstanding contributions to the country with the spirit of “Self-Discipline and Social Commitment”.

By virtue of his indomitable will, Shi Tiesheng devoted his whole life to literary creation and showed his inner optimism, innocence and kindness between the lines from his profound works, which were all the sparks of life. Shi Tiesheng's classmates, Wan Yongde, Liu Yu and Xing Yi, recalled the time when they studied together with Shi Tiesheng, and told the stories about Shi Tiesheng in their memory.
