Abstract
Guidance is as old as the human race is. There was always guidance in each society in one form or another. It is said that "Guidance is for all ages, for all societies, for all age groups, irrespective of caste, color and beliefs. It is also believed that the human beings always confronted problems whether; their problems are major or minor. There has always been an emergency of problem and there is always termination of problem. It means that challenges had always been there and if life is devoid of problems there is no beauty in it. The change must be there and challenges and targets should also be there. The researcher therefore conducted this study to investigate the missing component of Guidance Service in the Government High Schools (Female) in district Charsadda. The participants of the study were Twenty Five Principals of Government High Schools (female) who were taken as sample of this research study. After collecting the data through questionnaire from the principals of Government schools the investigator arrives at the findings that 80% Principals were not awareness about the Guidance Services in the society. 100% Principals said that no guidance worker or teacher is available for guidance services in their schools. 100% Principals replied that no facility is available for "Guidance Services" in their school. It is recommended that there should be enough exposure of Guidance in the society through different sources, so that there should be awareness of the true essence and meaning of guidance services. Guidance should be introduced as a compulsory subject in the teachers training programs and sufficient literature should be provided for the study.
